Hello everyone,

Can someone please help me with the following issue? I am importing a
text file that I want to manipulate (replace some parts) and these
parts shall be variables. Please help. I tried putting more commas for
the variable but it didn't worked. I also tried with the ToString
command with no luck. Thanks for any help !!

Here is a sample of what I want to do:

game = Import["c:\textfile.txt", "Text"];

w = 1500;

game1 = StringReplace[gametheory, (" 3,") :> (" w,")];
game1 = StringReplace[gametheory1, (" 4,") :> (" w,")];
game1 = StringReplace[gametheory1, (" 5,") :> (" w,")];
game1 = StringReplace[gametheory1, (" 6,") :> (" w,")];

Export["c:\textfile.txt", game1, "Text"];

Thanks,

Sebastian Cohen
