I have a VB file with LRECL of 1000. I would like to check whether the positions 16 and 234 contains $ or some other symbol and need to replace any character to $. I used the below code.
I see the output file getting replaced with $ at position 16 but not at position 234. May I know what is wrong with it ?

Use the Code tags, please. I'm sure it has been mentioned before.
If you have two, or more, IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logicalexpression) which both/some/all may be true for the same record, you need HIT=NEXT on all but the final IFTHEN. Otherwise, like a COBOL EVALUATE, processing of the conditions stops for the record when any IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logicalexpression) without HIT=NEXT is true.
