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)

Read more on php.net/explode, there's also plenty of other string functions
there that may help.
