    Highlight string in RTF

    I know this has been done before, and I have code, that works somewhat, however it's not quite correct...
    My problem is the length of the string will vary, and i'm having trouble getting the length each time I try to find the string, here's my code...

    I need to highlight the string between "(Part", and "G53", but as I stated above the length will vary...
    I have placed a sample of the text to search below..
    Thanks for any help..

    Code:
    HighlightWords MAIN_WIRE_SHAPE.PROG_LIST, "(PART", "G53", vbYellow
    Code:
    Private Function HighlightWords(rtb As RichTextBox, sFindString As String, eFindString As String, lColor As Long) As Integer
    
            Dim lFoundPos As Long           'Position of first character
            Dim eFoundPos As Long           'of match
            
            Dim lFindLength As Long         'Length of string to find
            Dim lOriginalSelStart As Long
            Dim lOriginalSelLength As Long
            Dim iMatchCount As Integer      'Number of matches
    
            'Save the insertion points current location and length
            lOriginalSelStart = rtb.SelStart
            lOriginalSelLength = rtb.SelLength
    
            'Cache the length of the string to find
            'lFindLength = Len(sFindString)
    
            'Attempt to find the first match
            lFoundPos = rtb.Find(sFindString, 0, , rtfNoHighlight)
            eFoundPos = rtb.Find(eFindString, 0, , rtfNoHighlight)
            
            'Cache the length of the string to find
            lFindLength = eFoundPos - 4
            
            While lFoundPos > 0
              iMatchCount = iMatchCount + 1
    
              rtb.SelStart = lFoundPos - 1
              'The SelLength property is set to 0 as
              'soon as you change SelStart
              rtb.SelLength = lFindLength
              rtb.SelColor = lColor
              rtb.SelBold = True
              rtb.SelFontSize = 11
    
              'Attempt to find the next match
              
              
              lFoundPos = rtb.Find(sFindString, _
                lFoundPos + lFindLength, , rtfNoHighlight)
                
            Wend
    
            'Restore the insertion point to its original
            'location and length
            rtb.SelStart = lOriginalSelStart
            rtb.SelLength = lOriginalSelLength
    
            'Return the number of matches
            HighlightWords = iMatchCount
    
          End Function
