How to make Match Pattern keep searching a text file until the end of file?

Would anybody know how to wire/make Match Pattern keep searching
for a "regular expression" within a text file until the end of file?
What happened to me was after Match Pattern found a match, it stop.
My text file has many "regular expression" are the same but I need
to find them to get data. Just for an example:
Voltage at TP9 is 3.4
Voltage at TP8 is 5.1
Voltage at TP3 is 4.8

and "regular expression" = "Voltage at" , how to make Match
Pattern keep go on until
the end of line 3? This is just an example of 3 lines, my text
file is sometime unknow of how many lines will be.

Thanks for help.

Do you want an array of all the matched expressions?
 
Please post your VI.  Use constants or controls with their default values saved to some representative data.  It is probably just a matter of putting your existing code in a loop.

By itself, it won't do it. You have to put it in a while loop. Start with the offset input set to 0, then with each subsequent pass through the loop start the search at the location of the last find +1. Continue until the returned offset is -1 and you're done.
