There is nothing wrong with the search and replace.
You are trying to save two different values in the same variable.Defaultly, the last value is saved.
So, try using another variable name for storing the second one.

You have to do the same way you are doing and for second replace instead of tbInPut.Text.Replace give strInput.Replace so that first replaced string will also be retained.

Hi life_s Ng,
You should change your codes as follow:

StrInput = tbInPut.Text
StrInput = StrInput.Replace("Net","")
StrInput = StrInput.Replace("-","()")
... and so on
