Hi,

In the following lines, I simply need to change the '0's in the patterns (08*119*5, 05*119*5, etc.) with a capital "O" (O8*119*5, O5*119*5, etc.) .  I've tried with the PRXCHANGE function but I can't seem to get it to work without changing all the other '0's in the datalines.

input COM_FIELD3 $1000.;
