Searching for Text

Question:
Can you help to create code for searching a word in a text box

Answer:
Let's say that Text1 is your search criteria (word) and Text2 is the text to search. Here's a quick example of how to do this:

Dim i as Integer
for i = 1 to len(Text2.Text) - len(Text1.Text) + 1
   if Mid$(Text2.Text, i, len(Text1.Text) = Text1.Text then
      ' Found the word, do whatever
   end if
next i
