Posted by Andrew Gould on 20 February 2017

This video explains the basics on working with text, or strings, in VBA. You'll learn about the String data type, how to use the $ type-declaration character and how to create variable and fixed-length strings. You'll see how to concatenate multiple values into a single string, including some string constants for special characters such as tab spaces and new lines - ever wondered why there are so many ways to create a new line in VBA? This video explains why! The final part of the video talks about comparing strings, including how to deal with case-sensitive comparisons and how to use wildcard characters to match paterns of text.
