Hi, I am having below data format. I want to extract data between the <textarea> and </textarea>.

The textarea is not in same or different lines

<textarea>abc</textarea><textarea>xyz</textarea><textarea>123</textarea><textarea>3adf</textarea><textarea>abc</textarea>

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can't really do that using html alone, but you can with either server side or client side scripting.

For example, using javascript.

<textarea onmouseover='alert(this.value);'>text area text</textarea>

For what you'd want though, you'd likely want to use "ids" for each textarea and then some sort of trigger.

<body onload='myfunct()'>
<textarea id='1'>.1.</textarea>
<textarea id='2'>.2.</textarea>
<textarea id='3'>.3.</textarea>

<script type='text/javascript'><!--

function myfunct() {

   alert(document.getElementById('1').value +
         document.getElementById('2').value +
         document.getElementById('3').value);
}
//--></script> 

Or something like that...
