Newbies Benjamin Foster Posted November 30, 2001 Newbies Share Posted November 30, 2001 I am sorry about the vaugeness of my post. I am using filemaker 5 on a win 98 computer. I want to remove the names from a sky word file. I can easly open this file in word or note pad. It contains a lot of information and each feild of information is seperated by a comma. is there a way that I can write a script which will go to this file, and say give me the text after the 7th comma and store it into a feild. What I am trying to do is take a list of students from this sky word file and place each students name in a seperate record. So that when I am finished I can have an update button on my data base linked to a script which can go to this file and take every students name and place each in a diffrent record in a name feild. basicly, is there a way filemaker can search a text document and copy sections of it into feilds?
