Hi,

I need to write a record with quotes in an output file using easytrieve.

E.g the output file should have a record like:

THIS ISN'T WHAT I WANT.

Can anyone suggest how to go about doing this in easytrieves?

Thanks,

Hello,

From the Easytrieve doc:
Quote:
Alphabetic literals are words that are meant to be taken literally. They are
enclosed in apostrophes, and can be 254 characters long. They can only contain
EBCDIC characters. Whenever an alphabetic literal contains an embedded
apostrophe, you must code two apostrophes.
For example, code the literal O'KELLY as:
'O''KELLY'
