try this

...
put fld "myData" into tData
  repeat for each line l in tData
     if char -3 to -1 of l is not "(*)" then
         put l & CR after cleanedup
     end if
  end repeat
put cleanedup into fld "tData"
...

Is billion times faster than parsing the field and deleting
these chars in the field directly.


Au revoir
