ASP String Function List
Strings, or variables that take letters and numbers, are used in just about every ASP script written. A string can be anything from "Hello, world" to "Four score and seven years ago" to "a thousand dollars."
A string can even have numbers in it. So a string could be "555-555-1212" or "800 dollars" or "192.123.456.789". Pretty much any letter or number you can type on a keyboard, and a few besides, can go into a string variable. You can then slice and dice those variables with a number of functions.
Here are some ASP string functions that allow you to work with your string variables. Click on any of these string function links to get full details on how to use that function.
