Regular Expression to detect repeating decimal?
Can a regular expression detect a repeating decimal?
For example, given these input numbers, can a regex return these
1.232323 -> returns "23"
1.23456789789789 -> returns "789" (ignores the "23456" before the
1.1371371 -> returns "137" (not 371)
1.13713713 -> returns "137" (not 713)
If a regex can't do all of the work, can it do part of the work,
supplemented by other code?

This is happening on a SBS 2003 Premium Server (SP2 installed).
This has been an ongoing issue since a Raid 1 Array / Controller (Promise
TX2300) has been added to the system. THe old RAID 1 array (Silicon Image)
is still in the system, but the drive letters where changed to higher letters
for the sake of having the ability to copy data from old to new.
THe server appears to function normally other than this problem.
The OS and data was restored to the new new raid array using Windows Backup.
The same original drive letters are still there, just now mapping to the

I have verified that any unused cells have blanks spaces in them.
Both columns have data in the same rows so the counted value for each
column should be the same but it isnt. All cells contain only numbers or

I wrote some code that gets the HTML from a Web page and stores it in a

is that on many pages I don't get new lines, I just get a thick solid

Also, if I view the pages (view source) in Notepad they look fine.
Most pages do that, but interestingly Microsoft pages do the proper new line

The first problem is that when I try to sort, excel keeps saying "this

Even if I do get by that problem, how can I keep the notes and the
contact/data info above it together when I use a sort.

I have a excel sheet in which there is data in only one column. The data is

Blank row can be as it is between ro useful data rows.
