The substringCiNE function performs a case-insensitive comparison between the two substrings {string1 start1 end1} and {string2 start2 end2}. If the substrings are not equal true is returned; otherwise, false is returned.


Use the substringCiNE function to compare if two substrings are not equal without considering the case the of the Strings (case-insensitive). Therefore the Strings "Hello" and "HELLO" would compare equal.




(substringCiNE string1 start1 end1 string2 start2 end2)

(substringCiNE text1 start1 end1 text2 start2 end2)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:string1String or Text The first String or Text to be compared
Argument:start1Integer The beginning position of the first String or Text to be compared
Argument:end1Integer The ending position of the first String or Text to be compared
Argument:string2String or Text The second String or Text to be compared
Argument:start2Integer The beginning position of the second String or Text to be compared
Argument:end2Integer The ending position of the second String or Text to be compared


Returns true if the substrings are not equal, and false if the substrings are equal.
