I am no great programmer but I have a copy of visual basic 6 on my machine. I have a text file one.reg (exported registry entry) but the file has a lot of hexadecimals, I need to extract only a portion of the file eg "0012902" which represents a student login name. There are many students login name in the file but they all fall between the quotes " ". I need to extract all the idnumbers from this file to another new file on seperate lines. (eg line 1 0012902, line 2 120232). Thanks in advance Raymond.
