Instr parameters

The great function InStr I use a lot has a small confusing part.
Which string comes first? and which second?
The SearchIN? or the SearchFor?
I got confused, so this post is merely to remind me how to use it.

I always forget which string comes first, the searchin, or the searchfor?

So, I thought I got it here online for my references

 InStr([start,] SearchIn, SearchFor [,compare] )
 InStr([start,] BigString, SmallString [,compare] )
 InStr([start,] string1, string2 [,compare] )

 string1 Required. String expression being searched.
 string2 Required. String expression sought.
