In the code snippet below, the
striptonum( function has no effect. The initial data in the field is alpha-numeric and remains unchanged. The file has about a million records and 20 fields. If I preface the
striptonum( function with a message statement, it does work.
field 1 loop fieldName = info("fieldname") if fieldName contains "alpha" formulafill striptonum(«») etc.
I’ve rebooted, reinstalled and restarted, all to no avail. very strange.
