The COMPRESS function used with a modifier ?

[ Edited ]

Hello:

 

Could someone let me know what are the ‘kd’, ‘ka’,’a’, ‘d’, ‘A’, ‘D’ referring to? Is 'a' the same as 'A' and 'd' the same as 'D'? Thanks.

 

names=cats(compress(names,"_","ka"),compress(names,"_","kd"));

names=cats(compress(names,"_","d"), compress(names,"_","a"));

num=compress(name,'_','A');                                                        

name2=compress(name,' ','D');

Have you tried highlighting the function and pressing the F1 key?

If you have the online help installed that should bring up the online help for the function.
