I have 850 VB record. When i am trying to use the basic operation (LIKE EQ,NE for example DROP IF=(9.EQ,C'TRYTHIS') ) it does not work properly. I am using batch File aid processing.

Is there anything special i need to take care for Variable length record. The manuals are not much helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi kpganesh,

I've never used variable recs w/FileAid. Does the position you use include the 4 byte RDW? If it does try 5; if it doesn't try 13. Let us know how you make out.

Regards, Jack.

Thanks for the quick response, As of now i could not figure out a way. I tried the 5 and 13 also but it didnt work either.i need to contact our system guys. But as of now as a quick fix i havewritten an intermediate step to copy the VB records to FB records (i know the max length). This way it works fine.

Thanks,
Ganesh
