8592Regular Expression Question
- Jun 4, 2002I am working on a clip that will find a date at the beginning of a line in a
file. I have it working for some formats, but due to inconsistencies of the
ones typing in the dates, the format is not consistent. I am not in charge
of the source file, but have responsiblity for the file I need to create.
Here is the reg exp I built:
It finds the first date at the beginning of a line, but not any after that
(which is what I want), but it does not find the instance of a single digit
It finds 05/10/02 or 05.10.02 perfectly. I cannot figure out how to get it
to find the instances of 5/10/02 or 5.10.02. Once I find this information, I
can delete it for formating the file for another purpose with ease.
Any suggestions? I am still going over the help file, the answer must be
right in front of me.
