    Copying words from a paragraph of text



      Copying words from a paragraph of text



      I haven't used FM for years and I seem to have forgotten everything. I must collect a database from data published only on web pages, which look something like this:


      Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, ligula suspendisse nulla pretium, rhoncus tempor placerat fermentum, enim integer ad vestibulum volutpat. Nisl rhoncus turpis est, vel elit, congue wisi enim nunc ultricies sit, magna tincidunt. Maecenas aliquam maecenas ligula nostra, accumsan taciti.

      Writer1: John Smith

      Writer2: Ben Smith

      Writer3: Al Smith."

      The "Title" must be copied onto Field1, the text "Lorem ipsum dolor sit..." into Field2, the name of the writer "John Smith" into Field3, etc.

      If someone could show me an example of the script commands to get me going, I'm sure I'd figure out the rest. I know I must use "MiddleWords" for example, but how to extract/copy/paste the data. I've searched the FM Help, but couldn't find the answers.

      Thanks, Jonna
