Did you try the manual? Do you want to post the code causing the error? And the full error message, with the number.

Hmmm, I just ran an Easytreive using the verb "SPACES" and it worked.
Here a 2-ways I know to move spaces to a field.

some-field 1 5 A

JOB INPUT NULL NAME MYPROG
MOVE SPACES TO some-field

JOB INPUT NULL NAME MYPROG
Some-field = ' '

"SPACES" isn't a "verb".

The question was about how to check that something is equal to spaces. With no reply to our questions, I assume the TS found out what they were doing incorrectly.

That should have been "equal to spaces using SPACES".

Subsequently the TS failed to provide any more information, including the problematic code.

Hello,

Can you show me/us the code?
Unfortunately not.

As often happens, when someone posts a "problem" and later discovers they have made a mistake, they just fade away. They do not post the issue is resolved and did not post the problem code in the first place. . .

There are several "helpers" who look at a poster's past performance and if they never follow up, these helpers do not even look at their issues.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Actually I was asking BillyBoya for the code and not the original poster.
I may have just understood. No biggie.

1) 10/11 5:55 pm - c62ap90 email had "IF some-field…" code.
2) 10/11 6:56 pm - BillyBoyo said - That should have been "equal to spaces using SPACES".
I'm assumeing he is saying my code is incorrect.
3) 10/12 6:08 am - c62ap90 asks BillyBoyo to show the code.
That is show the code for - That should have been "equal to spaces using SPACES".
