Removing spaces in a Variable.

Postby sriraj1122 » Thu Jan 20, 2011 4:05 pm

Hi All,

I have a variable like "CS__AD__CS" (underscore represents spaces). I have to remove the spaces in the variable and i have to get a value like "CSADCS" ..
I am able to do with small piece of cobol code.

But is there any cobol function which can perform this easier.

Regards,
Sriraj

There's no COBOL function to do this. You're probably best off leaving the existing code in place.
