What is the Sort product you are using?

Also please check if your sortproduct supports FINDREP or something similar

adding to previous querry,

here I got logic to replace one character with another.

how to replace these characters based on an indicator Present at position 1.

ex :

input:

2 where are you from and where do you stay
1 where are you from and where do you stay
2 where are you from and where do you stay

out put:

2 xxxxx are you from and xxxxx do you stay
1 yyyyy are you from and yyyyyy do you stay
2 xxxxx are you from and xxxxx do you stay

note :if 1 in first position then 'where' changed to
'yyyyy'

if 2 in first position then 'where' replaced with 'xxxxx'

thank you,

Probably you need to use INREC IFTHEN with FINDREP as a combo icon_smile.gif

Use IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logical expression to identify the case, the FINDREP subordinate to that. Again, many examples.
