Hi,

Its too complicated process if using the INSPECT verb.I think we can better go following logic using unstring and string


UNSTRING WS-MISC
DELIMITED BY ALL SPACES
INTO WS-WORD1 WS-WORD2 WS-WORD3
WS-WORD4 WS-WORD5 WS-WORD6
END-UNSTRING

STRING WS-WORD1 WS-WORD2 WS-WORD3
WS-WORD4 WS-WORD5 WS-WORD6
DELIMITED BY SPACES
INTO WS-MISC2
END-STRING

DISPLAY 'MISC2 ===>' WS-MISC2

Hope this will help you.

Cheers
Ashwin

The inspect verb can not do what you want, the string/unstring or just reference modification and a perform loop.

Please learn what the Caps Lock key is and how to use it.

Hello and welcome to the forums icon_smile.gif

INSPECT will change a value to another - it does not remove them - it is not an editor.

Please look at the post before yours.

Before posting a suggestion (especially ont that that has already been advised against), you might try it on your system to make sure it works.
