Hi All,

My requirement is I need to change all the occurrances of ':' ( Column) to ';' (Semi column) in a file. I gave CHANGE ALL command in command line after editing the file as follows..

C ALL ':' ';'

But I am getting the error as "Incomplete string". I know ';' is a part or the syntax thats why I am getting this error. Is there any way to do this in simple manner using CHANGE please let me know ASAP.

Thanks,
Reddy.

Hi Ovreddy,

By default ';' (semicolon) is the Command Delimiter. The Edit FIND, CHANGE, and EXCLUDE commands do not work with a search argument that contains the command delimiter, even if string delimiters are used.

so the better way is
1. use the ISPF Option 0 to change the Command Delimiter to different character.
2. then give C ALL ':' ';' where it is required.
3. Reset Command Delimiter back to ';' (semicolon)

Regards
Jyothi

Another way is using the hexadeciam code i.e. x'5E' without touching the settings.

I hope in this help
