Problems replacing defined block of text with WORDPipe

Post by Adrianodl » Tue Apr 03, 2007 8:13 pm

Hi there,
i am trying to replace a defined block of character (e.g starts with My name and finished with tomorrow.
The text is into the body of the message, therefore i cannot use the perl regex to substitute the code.
it would also help if i could delete everything from My name on.

Please let me know may you have more questions.

Hi Adriano,

You can still use the 'Use wildcards' search type in the body, so try:

Code: Select all

My name*tomorrow
Try also

Code: Select all

My name*
to delete to the end of file, although I think you will need to give it a more definite anchor at the end of the file.
