got a text file that looks like

aaa|bbb|sss
vvv|bbb|ccc

What I want to do is to open the txt file and search for bbb.
If the string is found then output  string bbb "found"  if not then "not found".
The output message should be displyed just once.  I dont need the output message found/not found to be displayed per line.

Does anybody knows how to do this?

Something like this...



Dim fso, ts, line, arr, result, counter

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set ts = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\Input.txt")
result = False

Do Until ts.AtEndOfStream
    line = ts.ReadLine
    If line <> "" Then
        arr = Split(line, "|")
        For counter = LBound(arr) To UBound(arr)
            If arr(counter) = "bbb" Then
                result = True
                Exit Do
            End If
        Next
    End If
Loop

ts.Close
Set ts = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing

If result = True Then
    MsgBox "Found"
Else
    MsgBox "Not found"
End If

Open in new window
