Description:

Replaces multiple values in listOfValues with replacementValues. Value replacement begins at the startingValueNumber value and continues for numberOfValues values. Compare to the SubstituteValues custom function (http://www.briandunning.com/cf/851).

The function behaves exactly like the native Replace() function, except it operates on a list of carriage return-delimited values instead of characters. Same as with Replace(), you can "insert" replacementValues into listOfValues by specifying 0 as the numberOfValues parameter.

As with all value functions, the result of ReplaceValues() has a trailing carriage return.

This function is NOT recursive.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.
