Hi, Could anyone please help me.
My REXX program is about to replace particular working storage variable with a new variable,It has to be changed with the new variable wherever it is found in the procedure division.I am able to do the changes,but the thing is that in my procedure division,it is deleting the full statment and placing a new variable.I dont want to delete the full STMT i want only to replace a new variable in the existing variable with out deleting the entire STMT.

Hi Lakshmi

Use the below code


Code:
X = 'PROCEDURE DIVISION'   
POSN = POS('PROCEDURE',X)   
POSN = POSN - 1             
TEST = INSERT('STMT',X,POSN)
POS2 = POS(PROCEDURE,TEST) 
X = DELSTR(TEST,POS2,9)     
SAY X     



Where 9 is the length of the PROCEDURE

Input

Code:
PROCEDURE DIVISION


Output

Code:
STMT DIVISION



Thanks
Sai

Please do NOT
post attachments as many people are unable to access these from the internet while at the office.

This cuts down on the number of people that are able to help you.
