I'm trying to find the position of the first value that is not a numeric value within a string.

pTxtNumber is passed in and could be**10-15672** for example. So I want to return position 3 because this is the first non numeric character. Then I want to chop of the string up to and including this character so that I am left with **15672**.

This code i initially did checks for where the numeric value begins but now i want to do the opposit.

FOR i := 1 TO STRLEN(pTxtNumber) DO BEGIN

IF Pos = 0 THEN

IF FORMAT(pTxtNumber*) IN THEN*

Pos := i;

END;

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Mike

429MemberIF FORMAT(pTxtNumber

) IN THEN

put

IF NOT (FORMAT(pTxtNumber

) IN ) THEN

I think it could work ...

17MemberIF FORMAT(pTxtNumber

) NOT IN THEN

and this did not work either.

I suppose i could enter into a substring 'abcdefg-!"£$%^&*' etc and then check in my string to see if it contains any of the characters in the substring but i thought there might be a more efficient way of saying find the first non-numeric character.

Any ideas?

IFoundIt - boolean

MyPos - Integer That should find the first non-numeric character in SourceString. So then you wrap it in a function and use return value.

17Member= FALSEto the second line. This then tells me the line number where the first non-numeric character is.FOR i := 1 TO STRLEN(pTxtNumber) DO BEGIN

IF FORMAT(pTxtNumber

) IN = FALSE THEN

Pos := i;

END;

IntNumber := 0;

IF Pos <> 0 THEN BEGIN

Alpha := DELSTR(pTxtNumber, 1, Pos);

EVALUATE(IntNumber, Alpha);

END;

EXIT(IntNumber);

Thanks for the help!!!

17MemberI just wanted to take the part of the string after the non-numeric character which in this case is '-'. So i wanted to return 98765.

mystr := '10-98765';

FOR i := 1 TO STRLEN(mystr) DO BEGIN

IF NOT (mystr

IN [48..57]) THEN BEGIN // ascii for 0 thru 9

newstr := COPYSTR(mystr,i+1);

i := STRLEN(mystr); // drops out of for statement

END;

END;

MESSAGE('%1',newstr)
