Hi,

Is it possible to identify the exact size of the data(Excluding trailing spaces) ?

For example:
Var1 pic x(300).
Move 'Testing' To Var1
Length of Var1 returns 300

I would like to get the size of the data part alone (i.e size of 'Testing' alone)

Thanks,
Vivek

kvivek,

Use INSPECT command to get the field length

Go through following link for more details

INSPECT STATEMENT

Hope this helps
