You are right if chars is a char.
If chars is not a char,

Position ( text ; Right ( Filter ( text ; chars ) ; 1 ) ; Length ( text ) ; -1 )

This use Filter() , so not recursive but case sensitive. for compatible

Position ( text ; Right ( Filter ( Upper ( text ) ; Upper ( chars ) ) ; 1 ) ; Length ( text ) ; -1 )
