Hi again

 

Here's one which is driving me nuts!!! :(

 

I have a text file with which I'm using the Text File Begin/End Processes. I'm trying to find a target text amongst the lines and to increment a counter whenever each ocurrence is found.

 

That's OK when there is just the single ocurrence of the target per line but how can I get it to record every instance even when there are several on a line. At the moment ME finds the first match on a line, increments the counter and then loads in the next line.

 

Is there an easy method :rolleyes:
