Reply with quote

Hi,
I have a variable of length 50 which contains some message. How can I search for a substring in this variable. Is there any command exists in COBOL for this? ie; One ex: My requirement is some thing like this, to search for the existence of 'AAAA' in a variable of length X(50).
