    Pulling one line out of a file (grep)

    strngr12

      Hello,

       

      I have a long text file that is beng imported into a Filemaker database. The database is not mine so I can't change how the data is being imported or the format of the imported file. I also can't create custom calculations or add any 3rd party add-ons. Also, it runs in FM 11 and I can't upgrade it to 12.

       

      I do have enough access create new fields and scripts, though. I need to create a calculation that will "grep" the entire line that starts with the word "location." Does anyone know how to do that?

       

      Any help would be much appreciated!

       

      Thanks,

       

      Dan
