Occurance of a word in a text

If i have a text in a variable, how can i now the number of times a world is mention in that text?

Thanks in advance…


Try like this:

              Count = yourStr.Split("world"c).Length 

The above expression will give you no. of times the world word repeated.

Yes, exactly. Here, Count variable is of type Integer.

It doesnt work :frowning: it throws validation error… weird right? you already tried it and worked?

Just split and count will be definitely the wrong answer… you can follow this instead using an execute code activity

Or download CountOcurrences.xaml (5.0 KB) and invoke passing the parameters :slight_smile:


Yes it should work. May I know what error are you getting here ?

Nothing concrete, only there is an error in the form. But dont worry, i could overcome the problem using a foreach and indexof so it finds all the times the word appears… thank you very much though!
