MiddleWords function

Question asked by Wicktor on Feb 6, 2016

Hello everyone,

as we know, the MiddleWords function avoids specific punctuation.

For example if a text is "John's house"

the formula...... MiddleWords ("John's house"; 1; 1) & " " & MiddleWords ("John's house"; 2; 1) .....returns "John s"

and the hyphen is lost.

It was described a custom function called MiddleWordsIncPunct  https://www.briandunning.com/cf/1384

but it does not solve the problem since

the formula...... MiddleWordsIncPunct ("John's house"; 1; 1) & " " & MiddleWordsIncPunct ("John's house"; 2; 1) .....returns "John's John's".

because as described by the author "it returns words including punctuation and quote characters to the LEFT and RIGHT of the word" producing a double .

 

In my search I did not find any other custom function solving the punctuation problem.

Anyone may help ?

 

Thanks

Victor
