What has to be a simple question

Recommended Posts

I have searched the help and forums to no avail and it is really starting to waste my time so please reply.

My issue is that i am using a database program and in need of capturing a record to a variable. The contained data is numbers and letters in a CSV fashion.

My goal is to create a script where it will scour a databas automatically for data. I have got the navigation part sorted out but just need to know this. I can copy to clipboard by using copy so is there anyway to turn this into a variable.

Thanks for your time and look forward to a reply :whistle::dance:

If the data you want is on the clipboard, see the helpfile for ClipGet() -- then you can use StringSplit as suggested above.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

I don't need to seperate the string because i need a CSV as output (apologies on my part for poor description)
