This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Hi Bart,

In order to account for the "<" and ">" email delimiters appearing in a source we were filtering I changed your "stext =" line to:

stext = Substitute ( text ; [ " " ; "¶" ] ; [ "<" ; "¶" ] ; [ ">" ; "¶" ] )

...and it works like a charm!

Thanks for this.

Best,

Thanks. That's why I put this up in it's infancy. I'd like to get the same type of comments from the ExtractPhoneNumbers CF, too.
