Returns a field from a row of data. NthFieldB is identical to NthField except that it treats the source data as binary data. The first field is numbered 1.
result=NthFieldB(source, separator, fieldNumber)
|result||String||The field value desired.|
|source||String||The string that contains the desired field, with the field separated by the Separator character.|
|separator||String||The character that separates the columns of data.|
|fieldNumber||Integer||The column number of the desired field. The first field is numbered 1.|
|stringVariable||String||Any variable of type String.|
The NthFieldB function returns the field value from the source that precedes the fieldNumber occurrence of the separator in the source.
If fieldNumber is out of bounds, an empty string is returned. NthFieldB is not case-sensitive.
This example returns "Smith"
Using the second syntax:
s = "Dan*Smith*11/22/69*5125554323*Male"
field = s.NthFieldB("*", 2)
