I want to pick the timestamp present in the load module of the CobolDB2 program. The problem is that this timestamp is
not present at a fixed position in the load module neither it has any fixed delimiters.
Can the timestamp be extracted by pattern matching?
By googling, i found that this could be used:
where inrecord is data/line from the loadmodule and ':d' represents a numeric field of the timestamp.
but this is not working. i have tried with ArraySearch routine also.
Is it because the loadmodule has the data record format as 'U' and the record length '0'?
Could you please help me?
