Hi all,

Can anyone please tell me how to validate the lenght of an input varible?

My requirement here is to,accept a variable and if it's length is 8 or 10 , the remaining process is to be done.
But iam strugling to find out a built in for the length calculation.

So please provide the information as early as possible.

Many thanks in advance.

Prasanth

I assume you are talking about NATURAL.

There is no built in function for length in NATURAL, but you can use the following method:
Code:
DEFINE DATA LOCAL                 
1 #A (A10)                         
1 #B (N2)                         
END-DEFINE                         
*                                 
#A := 'OFEROFEROF'                 
*                                 
EXAMINE #A FOR ' ' GIVING LENGTH IN #B
*                                 
WRITE #B                           
*                                 
END
