On the attached project, I have a BlockList form that shows all blocked websites in among several text files.  These text files are located in the test folder.  When clicking "Show Blocked Sites" they output in the Immediate Window, but I would instead like them to output to a Flexgrid for viewing purposes.

For example, execute the program under the BlockedList Form and choose the date range from 11/11/2014 to 11/24/2014 and you will find all the typical results below in the immediate window.


30                adnxs.com: ib.adnxs.com.                           192.168.1.100
3                  blogspot.com: adsense.blogspot.com.       192.168.1.100


However I would like to separate these strings as indicated above into 3 columns in a flexgrid.  Then also list them from greatest to smallest number of blocked sites



Any help is always appreciated.

Consider this a first draft. I assume you want to summarize the websites but I need some direction on how to do that.

Looking great.  It is exactly in the order it should be.

The only thing I'm pondering is what to do when certain sites that come up as

^.*s(3|e)x: expertsexchange.112.2o7.net.

I have to figure out what those sites are

Are you implying that you don't want any summarization?

Sounds good : )  What do you mean by summarization?

Well I thought there might be duplicates that you'd want added up and shown as one total, but I see now that there aren't any complete duplicates. There are for example a lot that contain "tumblr.com" but none where the second column is exactly the same.
