Hi Folks,

I am new to NATURAL. In NATURAL programming how should i get a string without leading spaces. Is there any verb like INSPECT in COBOL.

Thanks,
Shah

Yes, the equivalent in NATURAL is EXAMINE.

Hi Ofer71,

Thanks for that. I need some more info. I have a question.

Question:

I have a string variable ABC (A79), this is initialized with 20 characters. While displaying this variable i am getting 59 spaces and the string is displaying from 60th position. How can i remove the spaces.

My target is while display i need only 20 characters (Means with out spaces).

Thanks in advance,
Shah

Shah -

before the display, add the following statement (assuming your variable name is ABC):
Code:
EXAMINE FULL ABC FOR ' ' DELETE

You can find the ending position of the string after the EXAMINE, but that won't help you, since NATURAL always pad variables with blanks.
