moving/assigning data

Postby Rod » Thu Nov 26, 2009 4:34 am

file def
data1   1 5 A
mnth2   6 2 A   value '03'
year3   8 2 A     value '10'
ws-fill  W 1 A value '/'

output def
mmyy 1 5 A

I want to move mnth2 ws-fill year3 to mmyy
or mmyy = mnth2 + ws-fill + year3

but neither seems to work is ther a way to move multiple alpha items to 1 location? or do I have to have WS subfields defined formatted how I want and moved individually and then assign the 1 WS main item to the output field?

Not that i'm aware of.

Either define the individual fields in the output or define a group item in ws with the component fields defined beneath the group item.
Hope this helps,
