the code:

-SET &YY = 'TEST ';
-SET &YYTEST= TRIM('B', '&YY.EVAL', &YY.LENGTH, ' ', 1, 'A&YY.LENGTH');

the result :

-TYPE &YYTEST ;

aslo displays: 'TEST '


how to trim the trailing spaces ?



Thanks,
Yang

Using the logic you have this will work.
-SET &YY = 'TEST ';
-SET &YYLEN = ARGLEN(&YY.LENGTH,&YY,'I2') ;
-SET &YYTEST= TRIM('T',&YY, &YY.LENGTH, ' ', 1, 'A&YYLEN.EVAL');
-TYPE '&YY';
-TYPE '&YYTEST';


But I would use
-SET &YYTEST = TRUNCATE(&YY);
