You need to be a bit more percise, fixed or variable (the length of the Bs changed)? Are the splits always at the smae column?

Hi EnjoyMF

Can you be more clear on your problem.You want to split the record on the basis of length only or the content( A's and B's......)

Thanks
Arun

Hi Prasad,
From your input and expected output it seems like you want to write a new record whenever there is change in input charactor from your i/p record. If this is what you are asking for then tell me if the i/p is like

CCCCCAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBBBB
BBBBBAAAAACCCCCCCCCCC

then what is your expected output?

Is it as shown below.

CCCCC
AAAAAAAAAA
BBBBBBBBBB
BBBBB
AAAAA
CCCCCCCCCCC

Here what i am asking is when you segregate records there may a case in which you have 2 charactor popping in your expected one by one.
