So I could use the exact same 'CHANGE' syntax on Universe, then? That would be ideal -- even though I'm only converting the one character -- so could use CONVERT -- but if the same syntax will work as on UD then that's even better!
Does this work with the exact same syntax? Where NEWARRAY = CHANGE(OLDARRAY,SVM,VM) Would change the char(252) to char(253) in the string 'OLDARRAY' Thanks a mil, Susan -----Original Message----- From: Georgia L.

It's what I use for converting 1 single character to another single character myself. But the CHANGE function, which is available in Universe, is more powerful since it can take a substring and convert it to a different length substring. So you convert all the OUT's in your string to IN's.
