Need help getting data from clipboard.


Recommended Posts

I am working on an automation script. On one screen I can copy a line of information to the clip board. The line has several items seperated by a TAB once it is copied to the clip board. I need to asign values to varibles based on what is in the clipboard.

The data from the clipboard looks like then when pasted into notepad. All of the space between item are TABS

ORD-5448909  ROS0277892  NPC08256    Issued  Unchecked   0002     01 FSTG    Pickface 2   BAT0068217 5/21/2012 6:00:09 PM 2  0 Each 0  1 Each 0

The items I need are the first, 5th and 6th.

I need something like this:

$order = first item

$check = 5th item

$line = sixth item

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am at a loss on how to parse this data.
