Hi Ken,

thanks for that solution, that matches exact what I need.

I found in my sources not only strings like I mentioned before. I have
also strings like "eqmNbscBDown". The replace function splits it into
this string "eqm Nbsc BDown" - exactly what I want :-)

If it really is that simple then a single replace() would do it (in
the running example below).

I hope this helps.
