    Is there a "wild card" option in Notebook?

    louwin

      I have a text file which is a list of files names in the form:-

       

      1234 AM .....

      2365 AM .....

      4789 AM .....

      2345 AM .....

       

      I want to remove the 4 numbers (random but always 4) and the "AM" from every line, is there a way to do this?

       

      Like replace "???? AM" from every line?

       

      I used to use a line editor where the command was C/???? AM// to do just this.   

       

      Or is there a way to highlight the "9999 AM" column for deletion?

       

      The list is about a thousand lines so doing it manually is not on!

       

      Plus I will rebuild the list now and then so the job has to be repeated.

       

      TIA
