Hi Frank, if you got the above in a string, your best shoot is to use explode, for example like below: <? $string = "N50.34.234 E006.45.34 on 23-feb-2003"; $data = explode(" ",$string); mysql_query("INSERT INTO table (n,e,this_date) VALUES('".$data."','".$data."','".$data."')"); ?> Read more on php.net/explode, there's also plenty of other string functions there that may help.
