Copy and replace text question.
I hope this is the right place to post this question. please forgive me if its not .
I have a form in plaint text and I am trying to delete some of the data in the lines and save only the part that is needed.
Is there a way to save only the data after the the colon in my example? ideally It would look like Smith instead of 1. Last Name: Smith there are several fields but this is a good start. see my example below.
Last Name: Smith
First Name: John
Middle initial: R

Possibly. If this is a complete line then you would use a regular expression to capture from start of line until the first colon found. Then all these characters would be deleted.
To give us a better understanding can you present complete lines in your next post. After inserting them, select them and click on the
</>button above the posting window. This encapsulates the text within a black box and prevents the posting engine from possibly altering the text as it tries to format the post.
