Repeat Performance

A simple loop through your main string lets you count the occurrences of a specified character or string. This function is useful for determining if enough commas appear in your comma-delimited string:

 
Function Tally(sText As String, sFind As String) As Long
	Dim lFind As Long
	Dim lLast As Long

	Do
		lFind = InStr(lLast + 1, sText, sFind)
		If lFind Then
			lLast = lFind
			Tally = Tally + 1
		End If
	Loop Until lFind = 0
End Function
