VB Script - Need altered a bit

I have a vb script that looks for a number in some files.  However now I need it altered to look at column 3 of the files in the 'data_files_to_splice.txt' file.  I updated this file to point to Column 3.  However when I put the string around quotes in the array line, it doesn't return any rows.  I suspect that line needs tweaked?  Attached is the current script.

arrYears = Array( "Style 01 1 13 131 00 00 768780" )

Only puts in 1 array value of "Style 01 1 13 131 00 00 768780"

Perhaps you're looking for

arrYears = Split( "Style 01 1 13 131 00 00 768780", " " )

or

arrYears = Array( "Style", "01", "1", "13", "131", "00", "00", "768780" )

But duplicate 00 wouldn't be necessary.

I think I would want to see the script before you changed it, and what the input file looks like.

Script just had  '2012', '2013' etc..  for array.  That's only change.

I would like to try and help you with this, but I really don't understand what you are trying to accomplish.  If the arrYears was something like this before:

arrYears = Array( "2012", "2013", "2015" )

then why would changing it to the below relate to changing a column number?

arrYears = Array( "Style 01 1 13 131 00 00 768780" )

And what is in the "data_files_to_splice.txt", as well as some of the files that it references?
