Thank you Allan & Cristian for your replies. I'm not sure if the XML is an
OFX file, but I will log onto my bank, download a report, change some info
as needed, and get back to you.

I certainly won't be able to do anything that requires knowledge of regex
or much else that's techie for that matter, though I'll take a look at the
pdftotext utility and see if it's a quick & easy option. I won't be able to
do anything for a few days though. I do appreciate your quick replies and
willingness to help me out.
