hi,
Is there any method in cobol to split the data part(not low-values) from the variable which has low-value as well.
eg) ws-var1 PIC X(15) has 'MAINFRAMES.....' last 5 ---> low-values
ws-var2 PIC X(15) has 'MAINFRAMES ' last 5---> spaces
Here, i need the data part 'MAINFRAMES' alone separtely to compare these two variables.
I tried useing UNSTRING but that becoms complex.Is there any easier way?

Pls advise. Let me know if any details needed.
