search for sting with and store in variable

Can you help me search of a string and store it in a variable?

 var strMatches = PageText.match('HQID:');

This will search the page for the word HQID and store it in "strMatches"

There are 10 random numbers after HQID that I need stored in the variable instead of HQID.  

Can you help with this?

I assume you mean 10 random digits after HQID:
When it finds the string does it give you a position? You will need the starting position of the string, then use .substring to get part of it.

Or if PageTextmatch takes regular expressions, that would be easier. You could tell it to find
HQID: and any 10 digits.

I'm not real good that them, but part would be something like
[0-9]{10}

You'd have to get the literal HQID: in front of that.  So something like
^[0-9]{10}

I don't remember how to do literal text
I'm not sure if you can just do
^HQID:[0-9]{10}
