    Default Help capture part of a string please :)

    I have the following string (the parts between the double quotes is dynamic so not the same length or content each time) and I need to pick out who is logged on only, don't need any of the other content.

    "explorer.exe","2012","Console","1","30,832 K","Running","MYDOMAIN\Administrator","0:00:02","N/A"


    Now, I need to get the MYDOMAIN\Administrator part only (not including the quotes) and keep this in a variable.

    Could someone help me out with this, i'm sure it is fairly easy for one of you regex experts to do.

    Thank you.

    I'm not fluent in regex, so I avoid it more than I should. Even so, if the number of items is the same and they're always in the same order, then I'd use String.split() to obtain the 7th item in the String you posted and go from there.

    Perfect! an excellent way to provide a simple solution to a complex problem

    String test = "\"explorer.exe\",\"2012\",\"Console\",\"1\",\"30,832 K\",\"Running\",\"MYDOMAIN\\Administrator\",\"0:00:02\",\"N/A\"";
            String[] parts = test.split("\",\"");
            String part = parts[6];
            System.out.println(part);

    Thank you again, this has helped me out.
