Datastage Transformer String Functions - Index





Index(String, Substring, Occurrence):   
   
It will returns starting character position of substring. We can use it as a 'grep' command of Linux when we have to check if given character or substring is existed in input string or not. 
        
Ex:-
1. Suppose, we have to check whether substring 'le' is existing in input column 'Incol' or not?

Transformation derivation  -
If Index(Incol, 'le', 1) > 0 then 'Exist' Else 'Not Exists'


2. Let's assume we are getting 'India' as a input string, what will be the output of below derivations?
     
Transformation derivation  -
Index('India', 'a', 1)         =  5
Index('India', 'i', 1)         =   4   # this will not give 1 as matching is case sensitive
Index('India', 'nd', 1)      =   2
