Description:

Inserts any character or string as a separator between all characters in the text. I found it useful for displaying vertical text in HTML among other things.

Based on DashInsert by Daniele Raybaudi with thanks.

Hi
at that time there was not the $var. Try:

Let([
$i = $i + 1 ;
char = Middle ( text ; $i ; 1 )
];
Case(
$i < Length ( text ) ; char & separator & Insert ( text ; separator ) ;
Let( $i = "" ; Right ( text ; 1 ) )
)
)

After further reflection, there is a much simpler way to do this:

Case(Length(text) > 1 ;
Left(text;1) & separator &
SeparatorInsert (Left(text;Length(text) -1 ); separator);
text
)

A typo snuck into the last comment, it should be:

Case(Length(text) > 1 ;
Left(text;1) & separator &
SeparatorInsert (Right(text;Length(text) -1 ); separator);
text
)
