    Default parsing strings

    I have a script that is parsing reports from some old accounting software and putting the values into a database for better formatting and viewing.<BR><BR>The reports are plain text files that look like the output from a COBOL program or something similar. As a result, they are formatted in columns, separated by spaces. Is there a good way in VBScript to split each line by column number and get the results I&#039;m looking for?
