Remove a specific word from a text string


Recommended Posts

Thanks! Works great.

1 question about the search and replace field;

You can do that with JavaScript's String.replace function and a Regular Expression.


You can find lots of examples online by searching for "JavaScript replace wildcard", such as:



If you have a more specific question about how to replace something, then I, or someone else here, could provide a more specific answer.

Thanks for your answer; The problem I now have is that the word I want to replace is mostly "Location" and sometimes "location" so I was looking for a way to use a wildcard for the first letter like "*ocation" but that does not work. Maybe You can show me the right way to do that as a part of the replace substring code. Thanks in advance!
