How do I search the HTML of a loaded page for a certain string?

I'm trying to find "of about xxx" where XXX is some number.  I'd like that number.  Regex maybe?

Thanks,
-sam

you can try something like this, get the html of the page displayed in to a string and search for the position of the string "of about" starting from that position + 9, search for a space and extract the string in between the two positions.

eample

dim strBody as string
dim strNum as string
dim intStart as integer, intEnd as integer

strBody = webbrowser1.document.body.innerHTML
intStart = instr(strBody,"of about")
if intStart <>0 then
      intEnd= instr(intStart +9, strbody, " ")
      strNum = mid(strBody,intStart+9,intEnd)
       msgbox strNum
else
      msgbox "String not found"
endif
