Ian, 
I have several instances similar to this, where other text makes getting the number I want almost impossible.  You might try <%5k%e;%*f;%*f;%*f;%*f>, if this doesn't work (most often because there is a space in the text that can't be matched), then read the info into a stringin record and forward link to a soft ai record that gets it's VAL from the stringin record.

Subject: drvAscii decode string



I'm trying to read the following into an ascii analogin record:

"=V913 1.13e-04;59;11;0;0"

  and to extract the 1.13e-04 or whatever.  Using <%5k%f> just times out
and so does <=V913%f>.  Using %e makes no difference.  If I read the
value into a stringin record, there is no problem apart from the fact
that it's a string.

Any suggestions?

TIA
