I've been using the folowing to strip out content in a document thats between certain tags and return the results in an array. There are multiple instances of this tag.
What I've been using looks like;

arrA = data.match(/<DATA>(.*)<\/DATA>/gi);
      
for (x=0; x<arrA.length; x++)
      Response.Write(arrA + "<BR>");

But all this does is return 1 result between the first data tag and the very last tag. Ignoring the tags in between. I should get a number of results.

I hope this makes sense

How are you going to use the result??
It's for making a function or not.

I made a mistake in the line above, it should read;

Response.Write(arrA[x] + "<BR>");

sorry.
