Search Text File For Value?


Recommended Posts

hi all,


not sure if this is possible - have tried searching the forum and helpfiles without quite finding what i'm looking for. the situation is this - interacting with an application, my macro asks the user for a numeric code which it then uses to perform a further operation, and this all works fine. however, what i'd really like to do is take the number input by the user, then search for it in a text file, retrieve the text string equivalent of the number and then display that in a confirm dialog. i've got as far as experimenting with the Text File Begin Process command but haven't got much further than that - anyone got any ideas?


thanks very much in advance for any help,
