Hi All,

I have seen few examples in this forum how to TRIM leading and Trailing spaces for a string in COBOL. Just want to know if there is a way to do the both for a string with a simple logic.

ws-string1 pic X(30) value ' cobol book '.

what I need is only 'cobol book' in my output string.

Is there a way? Appriciate your help.

Hello,

At the top of the page is a link to "IBM Manuals". Near the top is the COBOL Language Reference. Look here for info about UNSTRING which will answer your question.

If you find something in the manual that is not clear, post what you found and your doubt - someone will be able to clarify.
