A good starting point, before appealing for assistance, is a Google search.

Try "webfocus function alpha to numeric"

Hi Christian,

Here is the code:

DEFINE FILE XXXXXXX
DEF_FIELD1/D12.2=ATODBL(source_string, length, output)
END

TABLE FILE XXXXXXX
SUM
DEF_FIELD1/I10
BY PERSON_ID
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
INCLUDE = endeflt,
$
ENDSTYLE
END

The above procedure would change your alpha field to Double-Precision Format (in define statement)
and then while summation /I10 would change the format from double to integer.

I hope this is what you're trying to accomplish!

Christian,

What is the format of the alpha field ?

Some of the suggestions above will work, but depends on the content.

Christian, You could just do this in a DEFINE...
I_AFIELDNAME/I9 = EDIT(AFIELDNAME);
where AFIELDNAME is A9
