Not sure if I'm understanding you correctly, but this is what I use when I
need to find an apostrophe or use one in my program. There's also a hex
code you can use which I don't recall off-hand but I'm sure before I even
hit send someone else on the list will have already replied with it. =)
D C ''''
I am using xlate to strip out unwanted characters from our barcode
file......and replacing it with a blank.
All things considered it is working well....except for the apostrophe.
Any idea how to include that in the list without causing the compiler
balk at me?
Here is the D spec
0003.01 D@INV c
Since the ' is the delimiter for a character field....is there anyway
me to test for it?
