Simplest thing to use would be the OUTFIL slash (/) operator.

Well, this might be with the assumption that the user wants to split the record precisely at the same position for all records within data set. RahulG31 can correct me if my assumption is wrong with his response.

Not sure if the text "where" will always be at static offset for each record, you can consider using PARSE.

Almost 9 years on the forum but you still need to learn the use of BB codes.
You could do a google search or forum search by yourself and think of your own ideas how this can be achieved instead of blindly posting here.
This is what I have found which is what you want.

That's true Kerry. The TS mentioned that he had 'a' record. Since he didn't mention that he had a number of those records, I assumed that there is only a single record. In that case, the position/length is fixed and it is easy to use only the OUTFIL slash (/) operator.

If the position is Not fixed then it can be made fixed by using PARSE (as you had mentioned) and then use OUTFIL slash (/).

Amazing. If the "where" is variably located, use PARSE to divide in two, then the BUILD with the PARSEd fields separated by the slash-operator on OUTFIL.

However, TS/OP is already happy...
