OK, if they do not always start in the same place, do the filenames always
contain only letters? If so, then
dsn = compress( line , ':' , 'd' );
removes the colon and all numbers. If you are running V8, it would be
dsn = compress( line , ':0123456789' );

Re: Extract word from a line in the
raw data file
Please respond to
The issue it does not start at 28 everytime. It varies almost everytime.
Only unique value to identify line is libref i.e. abc abcdef and dataabc.
I can get full line but need to extract only table name.
so for e.g. from below good lines. I only need "ABC.ADDRESS_RAWDATA"
20090913:10:23:36: 00000002 FROM ABC.ADDRESS_RAWDATA AS ADDRESS_RAWDATA
20090913:10:23:36: 0000000002 IOM LOG (73,20):111 FROM
DATAABC.WHATEVER_RAWDATA AS WHATEVER_RAWDATA
