Using the synonym editor against the master file where this field is described. Create a DEFINE'd field and use the GETTOK user function with / as the delimeter.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

In version 8.1, there is a simplified function called TOKEN

e.g.
MYSTRING/A100 = 'zzzxxxxxyyyy / xxx / ghagdahdagh' ;
XXXSTRING/A10 = TOKEN(MYSTRING,'/',2) ;


Check it out in the documentation.
