I am facing a strange situation where the EXAMINE replace is not working for me.
I have a work file. I want to read the records and in each record I want to replace the ‘"’ (Double quote) with SPACE and then write the record to an output file.
I coded as
EXAMINE #STRING FOR ‘"’ REPLACE WITH ’ ’
When I see the output file, I do not find the ‘"’ s replaced with SPACE. The double quotes are as it was in the input file.
Is there any specific reason for this.
The same statement is working for single quote, or any other symbol.
Little urgent please.
