Hello,

Below is the Output variable A having length X(70)

Code:
01 A
  03  title               X(15)
  03 Firstname          X(25)
  03 Surname           X(20
)


Value of A is
Code:
'MR                Firstname            Surname'
10 Spaces between MR and Firstname
3 Spaces betwen Firstname and Surname

Below is the desired output
'MR Firstname Surname'i.e. each should be sperated by one space each.

Please suggest me a method for this.

Thanks and Regards,
Sreekusr

1. Reference modification.
2. Redefine A as an array.
3. UNSTRING.

You now have three methods to choose from -- if you don't understand them, click on the manuals link at the top of the page and read up on them in the COBOL Language Reference manual.

And 15 + 25 + 20 is 60 bytes, not 70 bytes. If you cannot add three numbers to the correct result, are you really sure you need to be in IT?
