Welcome, William.  Another mailing list you might want to post to is the
Python Tutor list (https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor) which
is focused on people learning Python.

Seems like your problem can be broken down into a few steps:
1. Open a file
2. Read the first line
3. look for "1000" in that line.

Learning how to read from a text file would probably be the first thing
to look into.  See in particular chapter 7.2 in this section of official
tutorial.  https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/inputoutput.html

You may also google for other examples of opening and reading lines from
a text file in Python.

Once you've been able to read in a line, you can do a simple search in
that line using the "in" keyword (mentioned part way down the page
https://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html in the section called
"Common Sequence Operations").

Hopefully you'll find this useful rather than just giving you a complete
little program (where's the fun in that!).
