Hi Eric !

While reading the Online Book examples I saw the %RANGE and remember THINKING I
should check that out but got sidetracked with what I was already doing (tunnel
vision) <G>...

OK, so here is what I have:

OPNQRYF  FILE((WFBLBLSP)) QRYSLT('BLDN07=%RANGE("' *TCAT &START *TCAT'" "' *TCAT
&END *TCAT '")')

and I get:

Character ''' not valid following string '*TCAT     '.

Hate to be a pest but what am I missing ?

Thanks !

Chuck
