Can someone help me to understand MYSTR=" WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY, AND HE IS US. " PARSE VAR MYSTR V1 =10 V2 V3 V4 17 V5 =25 V6 1 V7 V8 Output is something like this V1 > " WE HAVE " V2 > "MET" V3 > "TH" V4 > "" V5 > "E ENEMY," V6 > " AND HE IS US. " V7 > "WE" V8 > "HAVE MET THE ENEMY, AND HE IS US. " I can understand how V1, V2 got the value, but confusion is with V3 and V4,V5 value. Can some help me how these values are assigned. Thanks

I did not get the same results as you. You will not get good answers if your examples are not correct.

Using '=10' will cause a break at the column, not on a word boundary.

And if you use something like '=10 v3 =18', it will cause it to include spaces within the variable.
