Dear All,

I have an requirement to replace all the '*' (single quote*singlequote)in the input file with * using sort card.

Input file: A'*'BBBBB'*'CCCCC'*'DDDD'*''*'EEEE'*'

Output file: A*BBBBB*CCCCC*DDDD**EEEE*

I tried with INREC FINDREP=(IN=C''*'',OUT=C'*') but it is giving syntax error at IN=C''*''. Can you please help us with the syntax

Your quick response is highly appreciable

You need to have 3 quotes on each side: C'''*'''

To get a single quote in a character constant, you need to specify two single quotes. And, of course, a character constant has to be bounded by single quotes.

I could be explicit, but that wouldn't be quick enough for you.
