thanks - since not every headline contains a $, would I have to make an 'if' line?

Here is my code - by the way, I'm new to this so I know it's a little messy - have tried combing this into one line but no luck yet!

/cbs2 {
set %cbs $read(c:\CitiNews\news\cbs.txt,w,*[14]*)
set %cbs2 $remove(%cbs,[14],[15])
set %cbs3 $left(%cbs2,7)
set %cbs4 $mid(%cbs2,17)
{
/msg #NewsRoom 47 %cbs4  %cbs3 ET
}
unset %cbs
}
