I'm trying to use the findstr command to search for a certain string of text at a particular line position, for each line in a data file.

For illustration, the data look like:


I am interested in returning those lines only with the string 073 (for example) located at position 81 on each line, but can't find a combination of regular expressions to specify this. I'm unsure if findstr is even capable of doing it.

Any advice is much appreciated.
