Subj:   Re: BTEQ cast a POSITION
From:   Capp.Luckett


Thanks for the response.

I am using the position to identity that I have cessation or cess found in that character string.

Tobacco comments is defined as varchar string.

I originally had it in the SQL Assistant working as:

     position ('cessation' in sh.tobacco_comments) as cess1
     position ('cess' in sh.tobacco_comments as cess2

TD SQL Assistant tool's result shows a column name of cess1 and, if cessation were found, a numeric value would be please in that column. In BTEQ , on the mainframe, the resulting column value is a decimal value.

I am trying to format it to character so that I can with another program look a cess1, cess2 to determine if they are greater than zero, meaning, that the character string was found.
