'Usage
Dim StringCheck As String
Dim StringMatch As String
Dim Start As Integer
Dim Compare As CompareMethod
Dim returnValue As Integer

returnValue = Strings.InStrRev(StringCheck, StringMatch, Start, Compare)
public static int InStrRev (

	/** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ int Start, 
	/** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ CompareMethod Compare

Not applicable.

Parameters

StringCheck

Required. String expression being searched.

StringMatch

Required. String expression being searched for.

Start

Optional. Numeric expression setting the one-based starting position for each search, starting from the left side of the string. If Start is omitted then –1 is used, meaning the search begins at the last character position. Search then proceeds from right to left.

Compare

Optional. Numeric value indicating the kind of comparison to use when evaluating substrings. If omitted, a binary comparison is performed. See Settings for values.

Return Value

If StringCheck is zero-length, InStrRev returns 0. If StringMatch is zero-length, InStrRev returns Start. If StringMatch is not found, InStrRev returns 0. If StringMatch is found within StringCheck, InStrRev returns position at which the first match is found, starting with the right side of the string. If Start is greater than length of StringMatch, InStrRev returns 0.
