How to read a number from a milti line strings


Recommended Posts



I have message with three lines as below:


File(s) Added: 11 of 443Files Matched: 4533Last Matched File = 4343.txt


I will always get a message similar to above format. But the numbers will be different. I just want to read the number bolded. That number can be 3 digits to 20 digits. How can i have a vbscript to read the number.


I started but I am lost.

   msg = "File(s) Added: 11 of 443                   Files Matched: 4533                   Last Matched File = 4343.txt"Of_Position = instr(msg, "of") readtheMaxNumber = mid(msg, Of_Position + 2) msgbox readtheMaxNumber

Please help.
