We have very recently bought EPDM and I am working on developing our data cards.
Our material library has many materials that have been added that all have the following format:
[MATERIAL] [FINISH] [HEAT TREAT]
What we would like to do is put these three values onto the data card in 3 separate fields.
Material = Information in 1st set of Brackets
Finish = Information in 2nd set of Brackets
Heat Treat = Information in 3rd set of Brackets
I had worked this out in dispatch and thought I had it functioning until I realized I made a mistake. If I set a parts material to be [UHMW WHITE] it ends up putting UHMW WHITE into Material and into Heat Treat.
Is there a way in dispatch to count the number of occurrences of a character? I would then be able to set up a few If statements pending what the value is. If only one "[" set the Material property, if 2 "[" set the Material and Finish and if 3 "[" set the Material Finish and Heat Treat.
