  2. Thanks s.pratt We went down that path after we posted on the forum we were trying to be too clever (not normally a problem) and use protocol scan but that only seems to work when matches complete string.
  3. Hello... We need to parse a text string to search for a single character within the string. This will then be used to trigger an SMS output.
