I have 20 members in a PDS.
In each member at specific location (Example - at line number 12), i would like to search for an string (example - search for C'A') and replace with an other character (example - replace with C'B').
Can we achive this by using This 3.6 option in File-aid (in File-aid --> utilities-->SEARCH/UPDATE opton)? if so who?
OR is there any other way? Thank you.

If the string(?) you want to change is unique and the position really does not matter for you then you don't really need to go that far, just give "C old new" and you are done.

PS: That's a very laymen way of telling it but I could not get a other way out...
