    Hi,

    I am not quite sure what you mean with 'character string', maybe my English is too bad.
    But if you want to find a specific combination of characters say "water" or "5.000" which are definitely in the sheet, then tap on tools (top right corner) and select "find" (could be a different wording - I use the German version) and key in your search string/term. Works with text and numbers.

    Does this make sense to you?

    "Character string" auf Deutsch ist Zeichenkette.

    And if Bill was looking for just that then my answer should be ok.

    That is exactly what he was looking for. I realized that I hadn't heard the term "character string" since my days of programming in BASIC, so I thought I'd check the exact word for you. Compound nouns can sometimes be difficult in translation.

    Thanks again. Yes, I remember the late eighties when I first came across it. And yes, it was with BASIC.
    Oh man, that means I am 30 years older now.

    Have a great day and let's hope we could help Bill.
