A character string.
An integer that specifies which word to return, counting left to right. If the Word_Number is negative, WORD() counts words from right to left. Numeric
Optional. Default = space (" "). The character that delimits words. If the optional Word_Delimiter parameter is not specified, a word is any sequence of one or more characters separated either by a space or the start or end of the string. If Word_Delimiter is specified, then Alpha Anywhere returns the strings that are delimited by the Word_Delimiter character. If Word_Delimiter is null (e.g ""), then WORD() returns a null value. Contrast with WORD2() which treats a null word delimiter as being the same as the default delimiter (e.g. space " ").
Optional. Default = 1. Specifies the number of words in the Input_String to return.
Returns a specified word(s) from a string.
WORD() returns one or more words, specified by the Word_Number and Word_Count and delimited by Word_Delimiter, from the supplied Input_String.
