Outlook Email Automation–Watch out for Administrator Access

String Tokenizing based on StrExtract()


I've been doing a bunch of string parsing in the last few weeks as part of new Html Help Builder and Web Connection features and one thing I've repeatedly run into is the need to parse strings and tokenize subsections of strings for temporary exclusion for other processing. In this post I describe a couple of useful helpers that save a lot of time extracting string values and tokenizing a string for post processing.
