String Manipulation Help

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to do the following: 

Given: "123 W. Main Street"

Split: by " "

Substitute: Each " " for "+"

Concatenate: "123+W.+Main+Street"

I thought using a combination of Concatenate(Substitute(Split())) would be the answer, but I can't seem to find the right combination. 
Any leads?
Thanks!

Hi @ericonline

Unless I misunderstand, you can just use the substitute function like so:

Substitute("123 W. Main Street", " ","+")
