Hi,

I have a data which has "&" in it. When i try to write the data, the characters next to & (which is DSN= in my case) is not getting written to output. Please find below the Macro. Could you please let me know how this can be resolved?

Code:

ADDRESS ISPEXEC                                             
        "CONTROL ERRORS RETURN"                             
        "VGET (INP3) SHARED"                               
        "VGET (INP4) SHARED"                               
        "VGET (INP5) SHARED"                               
                                                           
LINE1 = "'  SUBMIT PROC=AAAAAAAA                        -'"
LINE2 = "'    NEWNAME="INP3"'"                             
LINE3 = "'    &DSN1="INP4"'"                               
LINE4 = "'    &DSN2="INP5"'"                               
LINE5 = "'    CASE=YES                                  -'"
LINE6 = "'    HOLD=NO'"                                     
                                                           
ADDRESS ISREDIT                                             
        "MACRO (CNDUPDT)"                                   
        "CAPS OFF"                                         
        "LINE .ZF = "LINE1""                               
        "LINE_AFTER .ZL = "LINE2""                         
        "LINE_AFTER .ZL = "LINE3""                         
        "LINE_AFTER .ZL = "LINE4""                               
        "LINE_AFTER .ZL = "LINE5""                               
        "LINE_AFTER .ZL = "LINE6""                               
        "SAVE"                                                   
                                                                 
ADDRESS ISREDIT "END"

Ampersand is one of those strange characters. Try specifying two Ampersands instead of one....

You have so many quotes it is hard to follow.

Would this work:
Code:
"LINE_AFTER .ZL = "LINE2


Why the single quotes here:
Code:
LINE1 = "'  SUBMIT PROC=AAAAAAAA    -'" 

also try
Code:

Q1 = "'"
INP5 = Q1||INP5||Q1


Finally, if this is related to your earlier post, I would not use an edit marco like your are, but that is just my 25 years of experience talking, nothing more.
