FIND

**Syntax:** **FIND( S1, S2, N)**

*S1* = a string value

*S2* = a string value

*N* = a numeric value

**FIND** returns the index of the first occurrence of string
*S1* in string *S2*, starting the search at position *N* in
string *S2*. Note that the string index always starts with
0.

**Examples:**

**FIND**(``bc'', ``abcdefg'', 0) = 1

**FIND**(V1, V2, 5) = 9, where V1 = ``Functions'', and V2 =
``Built-in Functions''

**FIND**(V1, V2, 5) = Error - **FIND**, substring not found,
where V1 = ``Built-in'' and V2 = ``Functions''

**Excel function:** *N/A*
