I need to use HummingBird Macros to read a csv file and passing the values to an application running in Unix.
Also, I have to copy the screen from Host Explorer, launch Microsoft Word and paste it on to Word.

More Details:

I have Humming bird Exceed to login into Unix box.

 CSV file will looks as follows: (csv file is inside unix server)
------------------------------------------------
X1,Y1,Z1
X2,Y2,Z2
-------------------------------------------------
I want read line by line at once.

(eg) in the first loop, X, Y, Z variable values should like
      X="X1" and Y=”Y1” and Z=”Z1”

in the second loop, X, Y, Z variable values should like
     X="X2" and Y=”Y2” and Z=”Z2”

like.. etc.
These variable values to be passed to the required fields in the application.
Then, I have to capture screen, launch Microsoft word and paste it onto word. And whatever screen copied should be appended onto the same word document.

I am new to Hummingbird emulator. Is it possible? If yes, How can I acheive this?
Please help me.

csv file is an excel format with spaces as delimiters.

you need regular expression to fetch out x,y,z:

perl -ne '/(\w+),.{5}(\w+).*,.{5}(\w+)/&&print"$1\t$2\t$3\n"' file.csv

you need to play a little with the .{5} until it's "catch" Y2/Z2.

.{5} means skip 5 chars.
