in thread Get a known substring from a string

So at the moment, I get a whole load of ID numbers come in from different sources, but for some reason, they aren't spaced apart. So when I am trying to get that ID number, I can't use it because it has all of the other numbers attached. So I was going to strip everything else then run my script with the ID that I have left

    If you describe your actual problem, with examples of the real data, the real ID number you need to find and what you know about the number you need to extract; you might get some useful answers.

    Your current description implies that you already have the ID; otherwise how are you searching for it?
