So, I'm getting into Applescripts and have come to a road block in trying to extract a string of numbers from a variable. My variables read like so.. "blah blah blah XXX-XX-XXXXXX-XX-X yadda yadda" How can I go about setting XXX-XX-XXXXXX-XX-X as a new variable with the other verbiage floating around it? I need to maintain the hyphens in the resulting variable. TIA!!
