Remove junk characters by keeping the 'good' characters

Postby simantor » Wed Feb 25, 2015 10:54 am

Hi,

I want to remove junk characters keeping the good characters.

Below characters in the file that I want to retain ( and maintain the same column position ) -

'A' through 'Z'
'a' through 'z'
0 through 9
Special characters like `~!@#$%^&*()_-+=\|:";'{}[]?/>.<,

2. Want to remove junk characters like X'AD', X'00', X'15' etc. from the record and replace EACH of them with space ( X'40').

Please help me with an easy solution for this.

Hello,

Maybe it is just me, or this request is actually similar to the one here, see if it helps you, the query asked is almost exactly same.

Regards.
