hi ...

can u define the exact format for the record ...
we can search for a string within a string by using INDEX ...
also we can search for string directly in the dataset by using ISREDIT command

"ISREDIT F FIRST"(string to be searched)

Something like that?
Code:
/* REXX */                                                             
                                                                       
A = '-1234567-'                                                       
                                                                       
IF DATATYPE(STRIP(A,"B","-"),'W') & LENGTH(STRIP(A,"B","-")) = 7 THEN 
  SAY 'MATCH'                                                         
ELSE                                                                   
  SAY 'MISMATCH'                                                       
                                                                       
EXIT
