Default Finding a specific character within a string

Hi everyone

I have a string with commas in it, and I need to locate all occurences of the comma, using a character search. For example, I know in PHP I could you the strpos function.

Does any one know if ASP has a similar built in function?

You cna either use the InStr function to find them, although you could also use the SPLIT function to convert the string into an array breaking on the character.

Or do I use a different function for that?
