I have an application working that receives emails from a
vendor and inserts the body of the email into a database. My
objective is to then retrieve the records one at a time and extract
key information such as price, shipdate and UPS tracking numbers. I
use gettoken in a lot of my applications, but it doesn't seem to be
suited for this.
Do you have control over the format of the e-mail? If so,
make a list of the things you want to extract, then figure out a
layout that is easy to parse. If you don't have control of the
format, well, that's a problem.
