Hi,

I'm trying to remove certain group of records which has got the word "TEST" in it. The file is of 80 byte fixed length. My requirement is to remove all records those have the word "TEST" along with them.

I searched through the forum and found FINDREP, but could not find the PARM / VERB that does SEARCH / FIND function. Can someone please provide directions.

INPUT
Code:
ABCDTESTFGH
ABCDEFGHIJK
ABTESTCDEFG
TESTABCDEFG
ABCDEFGHIJK


Expected OUTPUT
Code:
ABCDEFGHIJK
ABCDEFGHIJK


Thank you.
Rajesh.

You need to look up what the field-type SS can do for you.

Code:
 OPTION COPY
 OMIT COND=(1,80,SS,EQ,C'TEST')


Edit: Missed the EQ :-)
