How can I find the position in a particular record/field where space is found?

Hello,

Are you looking for the position of the first space? All spaces if there are multiple? The position of the first space of trailing spaces?

If you post some sample data (using the "Code" tag for alignment and readability) showing the result(s) you want from that sample data, it will help someone help you.

Also, please mention the recfm and lrecl of the data.

No one can tell you until you describe what you want to do in detail.

Your "explanation" of what you want to do is not helpful.

Show an example of the records in your input file and what you expect for output. Explain the "rules" for getting from input to output. Give the RECFM and LRECL of the input file. Give the starting position, length and format of all relevant fields.
