Quick question: I have a 19 byte character field that contains only '0's and '1's. Is there a quick (simple) way to sum the numerals in the field
to see how many of them are set to '1'. This way if the sum is > 1 I know there is more than 1 byte not 'zero'. Unfortunately, the field is a
character field and I can't change that.
Thanks in advance.

The data is in a variable formatted like: '0001001000110001000' and I basically need to count the number of '1's.
I could use an array but that is messy. Hoping for something simple.
