Hi,

I needed to pick rows from a column(field) in DB2 table depending on some characters in that column.

For ex if the field length is from 1 to 10 positions , i need to pick all the rows in that column which has 9th and 10th column ='US'.

Please can anyone help me how to do search for a string?

Thanks,
chidu

Chidu,
This will do for you
SUBSTR(A.FieldName,9,2) = 'US'
