            just add a replace at the end and replace all ; with ^P if you want

            Or use this:
            ;put a carraige return between each found item
            ^!SetListDelimiter ^P
            ;find all lines that start with Latitute =
            ;assign those lines to a variable
            ^!Set %Variable_One%="^$GetDocMatchAll("(Latitude = .*)";1)$"
            ;select all so it will be replaced - careful not to save over orig
            ^!Select All
            ;paste the variable
            ^%Variable_One%
            ;replace latitude with nothing
            ^!Replace "Latitude = " >> "" ACIWS
            ;replace the longitute with a pipe (|) or whatever you want
            ^!Replace " Longitude = " >> "|" ACIWS


            you didn't really show what you wanted on the back end so I just used
            default for list delimiter and that is a semi-colon

                    We all started somewhere. If you learn and study as you go, then you
                    learn from others and we learn from others as we offer suggestions as
                    well. So it's all good. It is what the list is for.

                        The best way to learn is to take a clip and play with it. Find something that is close and try to tailor it to your
                        needs. You'll have to start simple, but you need to understand the basics to understand the higher points. This is a
                        challenging system, because there is almost nothing you can't do to a text file with it.

                        What has helped me learn, probably more than anything, is using the Find dialog with regex checked, and tweaking things
                        until it finds what I want. If it doesn't find anything, shorten it a bit until it finds part of what you want, then add
                        to it to get more of it. Once you have something that works, save it, and use it in the future, with modifications, to
                        do something else. I write almost no clips from scratch � I always copy something that works, and tweak it for a new
                        need. That way, you eliminate a lot of careless mistakes, which can be hair pulling with this syntax.

                        I can't tell you how many times I've had 'd' instead of \d in a long find, and how long I had to look to spot the
                        missing \. Of course, I have thousands of lines of connected code, so finding the ONE that is causing a problem takes a
                        little effort itself. Often, it takes far longer to find a problem than to fix it.

                        Regards,
                        John
