Subject: How to get a particular line in a multi-line text field
Feedback Type: Suggestion
Product Area: Notes Client
Technical Area: Application Development
Platform: Windows
Release: 8.5.3
Reproducible: Not applicable

Hi and Thank you to anyone in advance that responds to this.

I have a "History" multi-line text field. I need a date at the beginning of the line that contains 'Disposition set to 'Approved'. I cannot figure out how to do this. I don't think formula can handle it, and I am not the best at LotusScript.

Below is a presentation of what the field text looks like.
