Post New Requests Here / Idea: Help with small simple program
« on: April 16, 2007, 09:39 AM »
I been searching the internet for 3days now trying to look for a simple program, that will run on windows 2000

That would Pop up a search box where you type in a word, then it searches a Txt file or Xml file or CSv file, and brings back to the screen the line of next from the search name.

E.g.

Txt file looks like this

s32452135 4503205
s20034423 20304955
s0209422 2939923
and so on

Xml looks like this of same txt file
<Pwdobs>
<number>s32452135</number>
<Dob>4503205</Dob>
</Pwdobs>
<Pwdobs>
<Snumber>s20034423</Snumber>
<Dob>20304955</Dob>
</Pwdobs>

So i got the file, Now just want a simple seach that would look for required number - s32452135 and then it would display 4503205 in a txt box that can be Copied.

I thought using Xml would make it easier as you search in number and show Dob

But i cant seem to find anything on the net that helps me with this.

needs to be program if possiable to make it easier for users to use, But html popup would do too.

Anyone able to help.



also got other text files with info i want displayed in a program.


i have Visual Basic express on pc, but its been 10years since i used a programming lang

Wow, Thats dead good, Thanks so much, grabs the data that i need very well.

1 thing, Some errors come up saying G:\inv\C02348.txt - was missing a value for 'INTERNET EXPLORER VERSION:'
when it outputs, it skips them out in the csv, is there away of adding them but leaving the field blank

It dont matter if not.

What you are asking for is probably doable, but would require a lot of hard coding to get only the info you wanted out of the report. (From just a quick look at things.) How much leeway do you have? You could use WMI and gather the info that you wanted, even remotely, and put it in a CSV or straight into the SQL server.

Also, have you looked into freeware tools like WinAudit and Belarc Advisor?
tried the freeware tools, not so good, As i dont wanna go and vist 2,000 computers to run it.

If the whole text file was Made into a csv would be ok, would just ignore fields when importing into sql or access

Not exactly a piece of beauty but it appears to do the trick for me. Have you an FTP that I can upload the .exe and xml to? My webmail might let me e-mail it to you, work mail will definitely block it.

my email is [email protected]
uploading i guess one of them free sites like: http://www.yousendit.com/

Or gmail drive.

Or attach to thread if under 8000 KB
