Hi,

I have a string as below

"LOAD VALUE IS (170.25)"

I want to move 170.25 from the above string to a variable WS-LOAD-VALUE.

Can anybody suggest how can we achieve this using only one UNSTRING/INSPECT statement?

Thanks in advance,
Chinni.

sounds like a school project.
Code:

UNSTRING var
                delimited by '(' or ')'
        into   junk
                WS-LOAD-VALUE
                more-junk
end-unstring


learn to use the documentation.
