Hi,

I need to read a input seq file using rexx, the point where i got stuck is my input file is having some records with 70th position "*". I need to skip reading these records, I am wondering is there a way where while reading file it self using EXECIO i can skip the records which matc's this criteria. I am reading all the data to stem var and processing it.

Please let me know the alternative in case this is not possible while reading file it self...

Thanks,

No.

I'd remove them first before calling the REXX exec. Otherwise, you'll need to read the file one record at a time and, of course, include the logic to skip those records.
