Modern Military Julian Calendar (ZULU or Coordinated Universal Time (old
GMT))

The Military Dating system is a modernized version of the Julian system
with the EXCEPTION that the year counts reflect the Gregorian year (Anno
Domini) vs, the original Julian start date.

The Date format is as follows YYYYDDDHHMM:SS

Y= The Calendar year, (Currently 2004)
D= The nmumerical sequence of days in that year, beginning with January
1, at 0000:01 hrs in ZULU time. (ZULU is the Military's reference time
zone which corresponds with 0 degrees Longitude.)

Often the Z suffix "(Z)" will be appended to indicate the ZULU time is
the reference, if the Time indicated is the Time zone whewre the event
occurs, a L "(L)"is suffixed to indicate "Local Time"

The New calendar year begins at YYYY0000:01(Z). Often the Local Time
will also be referenced, usually by indicating a +\- (number 1-12) to
indicate how much adjustment is needed to make a local reference.

The H= HOURS on a 24 hour clock, There is no AM/PM in military time it
is sequential hours after Midnight, (0000:01 HRS)(Contrary to popular
belief there IS NO 2400 Hours, it is 0000:00 Hrs. (The first minute of
the NEW day) Even people in the Military get this confused, and still
"say" 2400 Hrs for Midnight. It is also accepted to avoid unneeded
argument. (Is it the LAST second of the previous day or the First second
of the new day?) Logically there has to be a "zero" point.).

M= Minutes of the successive Hour, 1-60.

S= Seconds of the successive Minute, 1-60.

This sytem has several benefits when dealing with a Global reference. It
puts the whole world on a single time reference. If the ZULU clock is
used world wide coordination is possible.

It also allows true chronological filing of date referenced events, the
YEAR is referred, then the Month, Day, Hour, Minute, Second....

This system is used to clock almost everything computer driven,
Messages sent through the Internet are clocked in this manner, and
(referenced to Coordinated Universal Time, the "old" GMT) and traceable
in that manner, It is in the "home" computer that the conversions occur
that appear in your VISABLE message header. (That is why you have to set
your local time zone and clock correctly in your computer).

The Replace in Block... had some problems <g>, so I reworked it.
You can only do one column at a time. I still need to do more
work, because as is, it deals with the whole field in each row.
That is to say that it won't replace parts of a field, but the
whole field. For instance, if you have a field with the date in
it and only wanted to change the year from "2004" to "04" it
won't do that right now, but will later after I do some other
things. :) It will only change the full date 08/10/2004 >
08/10/04 Just download the noteblock.zip w/o the Clipbar below
for now.

You might be interested in trying out my Library called NoteBlock
which works specifically with delimited files. You can sort by
fields (column), delete fields, reorder fields, and more... As
always, use on a test document first to ensure there are no bugs. ;)

Hello,

I'm sorry, but the 'Replace in block' clip in the NoteBlock lib is not
what I need.

I get (from a MySQL database) csv-files that look like this:

long";"1"

What I would like to do is to take away the quotes in field 4 (find &
replace just in field 4), but I have more files and sometimes I want to
do a F&R in field 3 and 7 for example.

Can this be done? And how?

Thanks again,

Bauke (Netherlands)

That's a tall order! :)

I don't know if I will have the time for this one - it'd be
pretty difficult or at least time consuming to do, but I would
need to see a few rows of the data. You can dummie the names or
any other data you don't want published, but leave the fields
intact. I also need the fields that you send in shown as you want
it corrected to. In the rows as they are, I need one example of
each date format that you have like if the four above it all of
them, then I'd need examples of those four full rows. The dates
will need to be reformatted into the same format (as much as
possible) and the month converted into a number (and then back
after sorting). All that would be done by the Clip of course.

Is now:
15 May 1900
May 15, 1900
May 1900
1900

Needs to be something like:
1900 May 15
1900 May
1900

Happy Clip'n!

The quotes there are part of the delimiter. Is that what you want
to replace or is there actually other text where "1" is and it is
within that that you want the quotes removed? That is what I was
speaking of when I gave the date example in my previous post that
I need to still do yet, that is, replace text within each field,
not the whole field. As it is now it will replace the whole field
with something else if the field is what is searched for in that
column.

I have NoteBlock:Replace in Block fixed now so that it will make
replacements within a field/column, at least with common
delimiters. It's really a pain doing some of the things when
quotes are involved due to a bug in NoteTab dealing with
variables and quotes, delimiters also.

I didn't hear back from you about whether you wanted to actually
remove the quotes around the "1" in your field 4 or not. It is
actually part of the delimiter and I did not make the Clip to
remove those. That can be done with a regular expression easier
probably so long as your file isn't super large.

You might be interested in trying out my Library called NoteBlock
which works specifically with delimited files. You can sort by
fields (column), delete fields, reorder fields, replace in
fields, and more... As always, use on a test document first to
ensure there are no bugs and you should have a backup. ;)

(with Jody's forbearance I hope)

Both these tasks can be done with Jody's clip stuff and/or purpose-built
clips I think, but if what you really want is to get the job done without
necessarily becoming a clip maven :-) there is a freeware program designed
to work with CVS files which amongst many other very neat manipulations will
do find and replace in specific columns.

Have a look at:
CVSed http://home.hccnet.nl/s.j.francke/software/software.htm

FWIW: this was originally recommended to me by David Elliot on one of the
Notetab lists (probably OFF-TOPIC) where any future discussion of this
program should more properly be directed.

Regards ... Alec
