If Problem Again


Recommended Posts



I cannot read the attached .doc file. The system is having trouble. It you want to attach a document to a post, please zip it.


Sometimes it is easier if you include macro samples using the forum's 'CODE' button. To copy the commands from a macro script, highlight what you want to copy, right-click, and choose 'Copy Command Text'. Then you can paste the script commands into a post. I used this technique to generate the code samples below.


There are several ways to determine if a specific string is within the first 3 characters of another string. Here are two:

If Variable %T1% contains "SEL"
 Variable Set Integer %N1% from Position of Text in Variable %T1%
 If Variable %N1% = 1
   // The string contains 'SEL' in the first 3 characters
 End If
End If


Variable Modify String: Copy Part of %T1% to %T2%
If Variable %T2% = "SEL"
 // The string T1 contains 'SEL' in the first 3 characters
End If
