Hi Greg,

I am loosing it with this today.
I do not understand what you are doing with the double STRTRAN(STRTRAN( calls.
Just testing a small string of 216 characters . . .
lgDirtyString = FILETOSTR("5010.D")
lgDirtyString = SUBSTR(lgDirtyString,1,216)
lcCleanString = STRTRAN(STRTRAN(lcDirtyString, "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz", ""))


Not sure what to do with the above code and do not understand the double calls. Can
you please advise as to what is suppose to happen here?

Thanks in advance.
