I have this file coming in as array (A250/8000) these are composed of blocks of data that contains different information… ex. the block (1 to 500) are the basic information (this is fix it will always included). the next block is the address (100 chars). the address can be more than one occurence (max of 999). Then the work places (100 chars) which is also multiple occurence (max of 999). Now, my dilemma is that I am not sure how many occurence are coming. There is one field that will act as indicator (say add-count = 3, work-count = 10) so it means that for the address block there are 3 address information and so there will be 300 additional characters. My job is to determine where the address info starts and ends so the work info… Any advice how this can be done?
