The character string to find.
The character string to examine for occurrences of the substring.
Optional. Default (1). The instance of the substring to find. Numeric
Returns the position of one string found in another, relative from the end of the string.
The RAT() function searches backwards through the string looking for the n th occurrence of the substring ; where n is specified through the occurance argument. If the substring is found, then RAT returns its Position, a numeric value that equals the number of characters from the end of the string at which the substring starts. If no match is found, RAT returns 0. Occurance is an optional argument, and if omitted the first occurrence of the substring will be returned. The substring argument is case sensitive.
