Hi,

can someone help me to write a function.

I have a text in a variable : textToSearch

each line of the text contains text and numbers
some lines of the text contains a date in the systemFormat
(for me in French format : DD/MM/YY)
I'd like to extract only the dates

the function should return :
12/12/00
25/01/01
30/03/01
15/06/01...

and this dates are extract from my text

Note : where a line contains a date, this line contains only a date 
and no ohter data

Thanks.
