Hi,
My requirement is as below. I have to search for a particular String S1 whether it is part (ie.., Substring) of another string S2.

The basic verb INSPECT can be used with TALLYING Option to identify whether S1 is part of S2. But the Length of S1 is not pre-defined. Only the Maximum Length is known to me & S1 can have any number of characters incluing Spaces.

Is there any Cobol Verb that can be used for above requirement?

determine what length (how many bytes of S1) you are looking for and then use that length as the length of a Reference Modification for S1 in the INSPECT command.

Only you know the definition of the S1 possibilities, so before you ask for a method to determine the length of the portion of S1 to use, tell me more, tell me more!
