Hi,

Found time to convert this program from Fasecero written for EB to generate classes to IWB. It may be useful to some of you - I don't really know how to use it!

You will need to move the 'validate.lib' in the zip file to the 'libs' folder of your IWB setup, and keep 'validate.dll' in the same folder as the program

I have renamed the program to 'IWBCM' from 'EBCM' to reflect the change

Yes, I met him a couple of times in the PT days. A very mild-mannered, lovely gentleman, and quite clever with it, as well. I miss the odd electronic 'chats' we used to have

in = "Bob Johnston 12/31/2022"
full_name = MID$(in,1,LEN(in)-11)

Short and sweet.

Bill,

The name part could be any length, with spaces, but the date part is standard 12/34/5678

Will your format be the standard, as in will there only be First Last Date.  Or will there be things like John Doe, Jr  or Dr John Smith?

I did think about that, Larry, but I was "in the moment" and just wanted to get it done

If it had been me, I would have waited a bit to see if anyone responded with a solution before posting that you had found one.

1. It might have prompted a little activity on the forum.

2. You might have wound up with a better solution...possibly.

Just saying...

General Questions / Extracting text
Last post by Brian - June 11, 2022, 05:40:22 AM
Hello,

I need to extract certain text from a line to a variable. The line would resemble "Fred Bloggs 20/20/2022"

All I need is the name part of the text. Obviously, names could be shorter or longer than the example

Any ideas?

Brian

PS: Figured out a way to do it, thanks
