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
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!).
