in version 5.0
The Replace method is used to replace text in a regular expression
search. It can only be used with a RegExp object variable.
Do not confuse this method with the Replace function.
The search string pattern is declared using the Pattern property.
You can use the Global property to limit the search to the first
occurrence of a match, or all occurrences.
There are two mandatory arguments. If the search string pattern is
found in one or more occurrences inside the string designated by the
String1 argument, then, as set by the Global property,
the first or all occurrences of the search string pattern will be replaced
with the String2 argument.
Set RegX = NEW RegExp
Dim MyString, SearchPattern, ReplacedText
MyString = "Ocelots make good pets."
SearchPattern = "good"
ReplaceString = "bad"
RegX.Pattern = SearchPattern
RegX.Global = True
ReplacedText = RegX.Replace(MyString, ReplaceString)
"Ocelots make bad pets."
