My objective is to manipulate a text file from my flexgrid  (MSFlexGrid1)   Then save it back to the same text file.

Attached is a text file which contains a list of websites.  These sites are written in a differently coded format starting with ^(.*\.)?    For example, google.com is written in the following format.

 ^(.*\.)?   thewebsitename   \   .com   $  

I would like to extract from this text file all these websites into the MSFlexGrid1.  The first column in the grid would list the sites in a readable format.  ex.  google.com

From the Flex Grid, I would modify the site name, for example to:  googleusercontent.com

After modifying in the FlexGrid, I would need to copy it back into the text file in the converted format:   ^(.*\.)?googleusercontent\.com$

Is there a way to disseminate the site names in this text file, separating these by sections, edit the website name in the flexgrid and then put it back together in the text file?

Any help in this regard would be very much appreciated.
