Setting Interger Value By Position Of Tab

Dan H

Recommended Posts

I can easily seperate a comma deliminated text file out into it's component variables... ie "test1,test2,test3,test4" into T1, T2, T3, T4 by using the set interger value by posistion of text with value of ",".


My current problem is that I need to do the same for "test1 test2 test3 test4" but don't know how to search for value equal to the TAB. Does anybody know how I can do this? Or know if a app that will convert a tab deliminated file to common diliminated quickly?

Use the Set Variable to ASCII Character command. The resulting string can be used like any other string. In your case, the string created will be a TAB character, which is ASCII 009.

Variable Set %T9% to ASCII Char of 009
