    I am in need of a script which will do the following.

    I have lots of text files with text in the followng format text:text2:text3:text4


    I would like to have a script made which will delete the words on either side of text2

    If you can do this PM me a quote and your yahoo or AIM handle.


    Thanks.

    open them in excel, with : as the delimiter, and delete the 1st, 3rd, and 4th columns.
    Of course, if you have a LOT of them, that might be too time consuming.

    If the words dont contain ":" itself you could do this by using php and reading out a csv-file... There a lot of samples in the net. By using that you would have an array for every line of your file and you could say that you only want the third contenteelemt to be wrote.

    Something like that...
