Well I need to work with these values but the tooltip says 17 when it's suppose to say (I think) NAE-02_CALIT.N2-1.RM-1601C.7-1VAV1-1,1601C; any advice?

Your text file contains 17 lines, from the help file:

$aArray[0] will contain the number of records read into the array.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Ahh thanks, so would $aArray[1] contain my needed line of text? What method is there to read lines of text in a txt file and import each line into an array.

The way you're doing it is correct, you just need to be aware that your information from the file starts at 1 and not 0, and code your script accordingly.
