Need Help Parsing File for This Pattern RH 09/27/08 11:49 11:49:00.024

Trying to parse a text file for records starting with an RH space and a date. I need to return the entire line. I expect to find about 6000 in the file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Example of a full record:

RH 09/27/08 11:49 11:49:00.224 COA292 H393 2664FB753 178 -54.82 8.98 C 431 264 13 040 34 24.45-074 58 57.93 H

you posted one long string, so you can split on "RH" using the split function on "RH", then iterate the items , split on spaces and check the first element using IsDate() eg assume "strContents" is the one long string sample.

data=Split(strContents,"RH")
For i=LBound(data) To UBound(data)
  s = Split(data(i)," ")  
  If IsDate(s(1)) Then
    WScript.Echo "RH"&data(i)
  End If 
Next

IsDate() checks for valid date.


^.*RH \d\d/\d\d\/\d\d.*$

will match a line that contains RH, space, and three double-digit groups separated by slashes.

In VB.NET, in order to iterate over all matches in a string:

Dim RegexObj As New Regex("^.*RH \d\d/\d\d/\d\d.*$", RegexOptions.Multiline)
Dim MatchResults As Match = RegexObj.Match(SubjectString)
While MatchResults.Success
    ' matched text: MatchResults.Value
    ' match start: MatchResults.Index
    ' match length: MatchResults.Length
    MatchResults = MatchResults.NextMatch()
End While
