Since most of my lines were (one letter) both clips appeared to work.
I accidentally had one line with (two letters).
\(?\) returned one and two letters in the parentheses while
\(.\) returns lines with only one letter in the parentheses (which is
what I needed).
Thanks again for all the help! I was able to look at all the examples
and write two additional clips that reduced my working time even more.
