I use the STRING command quite often and I've run into an issue.  I normally do STRING delimited by SIZE which uses the defined field length when gluing fields together.  What I'd really like to do in one application is have it delimited by the size of the field contents.  For example, I have a 200 character field but it often only has the first 6 characters for content.  I would like to the STRING command to only copy those 6 characters and not the other 194 blanks.

Any suggestions?
