Tip: The Extract Tool creates and configures EXTRACT, FIND and REPEAT. A detailed reference with examples is available, see Extracting Data From Files.
By default FIND alone will extract only the first occurrence of a match with its Value: parameter. REPEAT is a Parent to one or more FIND's to force them to continue to search through the file extracting multiple instances of their Value: parameters. REPEAT works in one of two ways:
If no parameters are set in a REPEAT a Child FIND will be repeated until the end of the file is reached.
|Maximum Number of Matches:
|Integer number of matches before Child FIND's stop searching.
|Stop When Value:
|Same syntax as Value: parameter of a FIND. When found, the REPEAT will
stop all Child FIND's.
|Specify whether a Child FIND can also match the same line that the Stop
When Value: matches. (default→Include in Search or Exclude from Search)
|Data types to match to the object references set in Stop When Value:. (Integer, Real, Text)
