Hi dichandr,

If i am correct, Your sample data itself is like delimite by "#".

1. Mail the PS file as .txt.
2. while opening the .txt file using Excel , Text Import wizard will be displayed.. In this select the "Delimited" radio button and in next page select the Delimiter as "#" and then press finish.
3. Your data will be splitted into coloumns which are seperated by "#"

Hope this will serve u the solution. :)

The mainframe world is driven by increased usage of digital services that constitute more and more of the world economy. These services are more often than not run by mainframes in a central data center setting. These demands are subject to the fluctuations of web-driven demand and therefore need the strengths that only the mainframe can deliver: reliability, availability and scalability all wrapped in the most secure computing environment.
And this has what relevance to the topic??
