    Well, I need it for a statistics class in university, I have no programming knowledge at all but this little thing would help me since I need the datas somehow. I'll edit and bold some numbers. I'll have to do it by hands otherwise (I have thousands of entries).

    I'll try to read on that, but I'm mainly asking for someone to do it since I have no knowledge at all in programming or whatever.

    I want to be able to use all the data. These are documents I typed up, and now each document takes only one line. I would like to be able to find each lines which have the same characters between case 6 and 16 (included) because this portion is unique for each document (but each document was supposed to be typed twice).
    I would like to have one of the duplicate in one text file and the other in a second text file. A third text file could be created with lines that don't have a match between the 6th and 16th character.

    do you want a program that does it or do you just want it done?

    I'd import the data into a database and work on it that way... I could have it done in 10 minutes if you give me all the data.

    I found someone which can do it and give me the file, the best thing would be to get the program to be able to do it here though and it would lead to $$.

    so you want me to take this data
    (without that space)

    and turn it into three different files that look like this?

    Exactly. The uniqueness or the presence of the duplicate should be based on the number underlined.

    I found a program which can do what I want by the way, if someones interested it's called TextOOLS I think. I'm at college right now and I'll play with it later (I have an exam today :o) but if you can help me before I get home at around 4 pm, you can still get the 20$. Someone else is trying to program it at the same time too, so hurry !
