      Hi Art,

      I suspect that none of the people offering solutions are privy to the format of the data file. So verifying input must be left to Flo.

      For example, the ^$GetDocMathcAll statement must include the field delimiter to avoid also matching the first three characters of longer words, which might not be index codes at all.
