No the numbers of character change in column 2,3 & 6 in each row in each file.
Column 1 is always 8 characters. The delimiter on the columns is always the * symbol.
Columns 4 and 5 are the same text and characters for each row per file, but change for different files, hence only need to use the information from the first line or each file.
Files can be two rows or 20 rows.
These previous examples probably not so good here are some more.
Existing file name is 00706410.lcc
Needs to be WENTYS-DEIETNW.lcc
Existing file name is 00337910.lcc
Needs to be MORTOD-OSALEYER.lcc
NOTE: The last line of the file is a copy of the prevoius with 00000000 in column 1 and nothing in column 6. The * symbols are still there.
Does that make it more difficult?
Hope someone can help me as have been trying for weeks to figure it out?
