% Symbol Problem

% Symbol Problem

% Symbol Problem

(OP)
Does anyone know how to include either code to ignore percentage symbols (ie %) or code that allows me to stop ready a line when a % is present?

At the present I'm reading a line with the following code

  NOTESLINE1=Sess0.Screen.GetString(7,5,70)
       do until instr(notesline1,"(")=0
notesline1=left(notesline1,instr(notesline1,"(")-1) & "[" & _
        mid(notesline1,instr(notesline1,"(")+1)
        loop

The problem is that when there are % symbols in the NOTESLINE1 field, it is interpreted as a key stoke into the program I'm interfacing with. Some help would be greatly appreciated :)
