Hi,

can any one please let me know if there is any way of placing a varibale in the position specified using REXX

EX:
Input File delimited by comma
----+----1----+----2----+--
AAA,BBB,CCC
EEE,FFFFFFF,GGGGG
HHH,IIIIIIIIII,JJ

Required the output file like
first varibale in position 10 irrespective of length,
second in position 20 and third in position 40

1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5-
AAA BBB CCC
EEE FFFFFFF GGGGG
HHH IIIIIIIIII JJ

Code:
csv="AAA,bbb,ccccc,d,e,f"
parse var csv v1 "," v2 "," v3 "," v4 "," v5 "," v6 "," .
txt = ""
txt = txt || left(v1,10," ")
txt = txt || left(v2,10," ")
txt = txt || left(v3,10," ")
txt = txt || left(v4,10," ")
txt = txt || left(v5,10," ")
txt = txt || left(v6,10," ")

say "csv ==>" csv
say "txt ==>" txt


tested and working

Enrico's solution looks good, except the OP wanted the first value to be in position 10.

I think initial value of txt should be:
Code:
txt = copies(" ",9)   


which will cause everything else to shift right
