Subject: CLP question

Morning all
I have to make a change to a CLP program that reads a file.
I need to see if a particular field on that file contains a particular
string ANYWHERE within that field.
I know about %SST, but you need to know the starting position
and length.
Is there any other way of accomplishing this within CL?

Thanks in advance
