Problem replacing data values with wildcard characters, when using the StrTran function.
StrTran function searches for and replaces characters in a string.
Syntax: sChanged = StrTran (sOrig, sSearch, sReplace)
StrTran interprets literally whatever you put into the sSearch parameter of the function, so if for example you wished to remove the HTML tagging from a data string, you might expect that entering "" for sSearch would find every string that started with a LesserThan symbol "". However, StrTran interpets the search string literally and does not treat the asterisk as a wildcard.
