Hi, The first person who responded is entirely on the money in terms of saying what the code you presented actually does. What I think you may be confusing this is is the substitute command s/,.*[a-zA-Z].*// which removes everything from the comma so long as there is at least one letter. So, applied to: Blunderville University,1,2n,4 you end up with Blunderville University Cheers MichaelW PS GOOD LUCK.
