Don’t know if this helps, but the Regex for a tab char should be \t - if you are unsure about Regex syntax, you can try it out on

This is what I always do, since I use Regex in SQL and RPG from time to time, and I’m always unsure about the syntax.

So the /t didn't find anything when I clicked on regular expression.

When I copied it to ACS, it looked the same but I could use my arrow left/right to see that tabs exist in the data.

CTRL-SHIFT-F formatted it correctly, but as soon as I clicked in a certain part of the expression, it shifted some of the lines again.

Not a big deal, just very weird.

In the RDI, open the find dialog and search for regular expression /t and replace that with a blank.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Autoformat Exec SQL


I recently pasted some SQL code into a source member. It must have contained a mix of tabs and spaces for the indents.

When I click different places in the code, I can see the indents "shift"... several lines move right.

If I click anywhere in the code section that moves, the rows "auto-align".



Can someone shed some light?
