Mark Weider's code will work for you, Klaus… the "tValue" is something that the matchText function FILLS with the current text inside the brackets, so you don't need to know it ahead of time. The "(.*?)" is a way to "capture" what is between the tags, and the 3rd+ parameters to he matchTextFunction are variables that are provided to the function that get filled with whatever is being captured. The matchText function returns either 'true' (if it can find what you are looking for) or 'false') if it can't. Mark's code above assumes a 'true' result by using "get". Here's an example that takes into account the possibility that you may not match what you're looking for: put "<tag>Hello</tag>" into tData if matchText(tData,"(?s)<tag>(.*?)</tag>",tValue) = "true" then put tValue -- Since this matches, you'll get "Hello" in the msg box else put "No Match" end if > Ken Ray Sons of Thunder Software, Inc.
