Hi,

i need a word to be trimmed till 6 chars only.

The WORD and SUBWORD are for a whole word in REXX but i need the reference modification as in COBOL to get the desired result.

Ex:

IN COBOL-

VAR1 PIC X(18) 'IBM MAINFRAMES.COM'

VAR1(5:10) would give the 'MAINFRAMES' as output.


i need the above to be performed in REXX please help!!!!

i apologise if it silly....

At the top of this forum there is a sticky which goes into the TSO/REXX/ISPF manuals.

Look at the REXX reference manual and look at SUBSTR or LEFT
