I think you are looking for:
Returns the index position of SubStr in Str. Use the
CaseSensitive parameter to determine if the match should be case
sensitive or not. Returns 0 if there is no match. Tab and line-
break tokens are automatically converted to their real characters
since version 4.6.

Not really. You need to know the search criteria and filed
before searching for it. You might be missing the ;Col; part.
Your file needs to be a delimited file, such as tab delimited.
Row is obvious
Col is not a column like each character, but a field number
for the column in the delimited file.
Below we would be looking for the date shown in the search
criteria when it is in the third column. There would be
col1[tab]col2[tab]then col3. The options are self explanatory,
I think. ;) Perhaps a piratical use you be you want to get all
the lines that have the date in the field. The lines could be
sales, ;), when something was added, when it was uploaded, etc.
; Returns the position of a search criteria in the specified field in a delimited
; text. No match returns 0. You can use the following optional settings:
; T: Does not search for words only (search string can be found within longer words)
; I: Ignore character case
; W: Criteria must match whole field
; S: Criteria must be at start of field
