    vbscript string manipulation

    can anyone think of a way of reading in a string then outputting it back stripping out any commas? I have an inventory script and Samsung put a ~@*&ing , in their name which means it blows all my table formatting to pieces

    The replace function? What am I missing?

    something like :

    output=replace(input,",","")

    quick test with partial code (just the bit I need on the affected laptop typically the heads lol) shows it works now up to v8 of a script I only did v1 for a few weeks ago lol

    even simpler though input=replace(input,",","")

    Might be worth bookmarking this site: VBScript Language Reference

    The beauty of VBS being so simple is that just by scanning function names in a list, 9 times out of 10 you'll find what you need.
