I need to search for a string in different generations of a GDG and if the string is found in any generation I need those generations listed in my search output.

Just to be clear, if you have a thousand generations, and if the string is found in 999 of them, you want to report on all of the 999 generations where the string was found? Or, only the most recent? The oldest?

This is a similar topic. I'll see if I can find more.

Here's another one.

This one looks useful, since it looks as if you may need to code a program to do what you want.

Hello,

Did you read all of the first link Kevin posted?

I don't see that there's any options other than a loop, searching each generation individually, indicating a YES/NO on the match, and then printing out only the generations where a YES is indicated.
