Alan,

Based on the previous addition to your question:
Use QCLSCAN API or somthing for that to:

search for the slash from position 3
search for the text ".txt. (if it is alwats a txt-file)

use the results to calculate the start and the length and then use %subst.

Regards,
Carel Teijgeler

Hi everyone
And before I forget (as I normally do) we are on V5r4.
Within CL, is there a way to obtain a string from the following examples.

1. /weborders/PP91055370.txt
From the above, I am looking for the value PP91055370

2. /ifsdir/PP91055370,tx
From the above, I am looking for the value PP91055370

3. /ifsdir2/PP9.txt

From the above I am looking for PP9

In other words, the values between (but NOT including) the second '/'
and '.txt'
As always, any and all responses are MUCH appreciated.
