Also, what does it mean (two dots). 0.211002.1.44488? This is a non-sense result and is a sure sign there is a problem in the code you used to get this result. >Please solve this puzzle In order for anyone to do this you will need to post the code that produced the results you posted above. From what you have posted, I expect the source of the problem is likely to be the pattern you are using for ReplaceAll.
