Hi,

i am reading a report using rexx and getting certain values onto some variables.

but values are present as 1,960(commas between numbers).

so when i do any arthematic operations on thet values getting error as 'Bad arithmetic conversion'.

is there any way to convert those into numeric values in rexx?

ex: i want to convert 1,960 as 1960(without commas and should be numeric value).

please post your valuable suggestions, thanks.

SPACE and TRANSLATE are a few of of those key REXX functions along with PARSE. You should learn them well as you will use them a lot.
