ReplaceMulti - Multiple string replacements

' Perform multiple substitutions in a string
' The first argument is the string to be searched
' The second argument is vbBinaryCompare or vbTextCompare
'     and tells whether the search is case sensitive or not
' The following arguments are pairs of (find, replace) strings
' For example:
'   Print ReplaceMulti("ABCDEF abcdef", vbBinaryCompare, "AB", "#", "DE", "%")
'         displays "#C%F abcdef"
'   Print ReplaceMulti("ABCDEF abcdef", vbTextCompare, "AB", "#", "DE", "%")
'         displays "#C%F #c%f"
' The function raises an error if the arguments are unbalanced

Function ReplaceMulti(ByVal Text As String, CompareMethod As VbCompareMethod, _
    ParamArray args() As Variant) As String
    Dim i As Integer
    ' raise Illegal Function Call error if the args()
    ' array contains an odd number of items
    If UBound(args) Mod 2 = 0 Then
        Err.Raise 5
    End If
    ' replace each argument in the pair
    For i = 0 To UBound(args) Step 2
        Text = Replace(Text, args(i), args(i + 1), , , CompareMethod)
    ReplaceMulti = Text
End Function
