i have a series of FB 80 records, in which some, but not all, have, at a variable position the characters ".R1", ".R2", or ".R3".
I want to write out only records which have one of the ".R" variants, AND
a 4 byte blank field 7 bytes beyond where the ".R" variant started.
I've tried several (thousand?) variants on
to form an "intermediate" record bering "flags" and the original data, hoping to use OUTREC processing to select only those "tagged" records.
I strongly suspect I may be barking up a blue herring!
Can anyone help?

Please show me an example of your input records and what you expect for output. Show all of the variations you need to handle in the example. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - firstname.lastname@example.org
