Hello, I have a whole bunch of html files in a directory, named transactionData1.html, transactionData2.html and so on. In these HTML files, transaction information is buried with the following parameters of interest :
<b>Customer Name: </b>Michael Henesi<br />
<b>Transaction ID:</b> 21987335670
The transaction ID has varying length and is sometimes not available (no entry in that field). Sometimes there are multiple transactions. Sometimes, the transaction ID is specified as:
<b>Transaction ID: </b>21987335670
that is, the space before transaction ID gets shifted to space after the colon.
In some HTML files, both, the Customer Name and the Transaction ID information is missing.
The objective is to get all the Transaction IDs, along with the Customer Names, from all the files in the directory, in one text file. How can this be done ?
