Data range input

Postby pcs2smf » Thu Mar 18, 2010 6:18 pm

I've been asked to modify a routine that reads in a set of acceptable return codes like:
PARSE UPPER VAR CCS CC1 CC2 CC3 CC4 CC5 CC6 CC7 CC8 CC9 CC10
the modification should be able to read a range of data to extend the input say from
0,4,8,50,60,70,80,90,92,95
to
0,4,8,50,60-70,80,90,92,95
anyone have any ideas?

The parse statement reads a string of numbers on a line - theres only rom for 10 numbers as there are 3 other fields. So in order to add more customer would like to add a range. This is an audit routine reading acceptable return codes. Probably a poor setup but thats what I'm stuck with. The 60-70 would then be CC11 CC12 ..... CC21 and this would have no limit. Any help would be appreciated.

the explanation keeps getting more confused!
the parse instruction as written will assign to the specified variables the blank separated substrings
it will not care about the content

fr = "01 02 04-09 14 19"
parce var fr a b c d e

will result in
a = "01"
b = "02"
c = "04-09"
d = "14"
e = "19"

nothing more, nothing less
then You will have to decide the format of a range token
and analyze each substring for it

if You really want some help learn to explain better Your requisites

Hello,

You might consider changing the code to accept a range in every CCn. If only 1 value is provided, the range starts and ends with that value. If 2 values are provided, they are the start and end. . . The user might not ever use this, but i believe it would be easier to support one set of code rather than multiple. . .
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
