Hi Team,

How can I read first variable wild - character.

I wish to read only first wild characters not last.

Please guide me.

    Hi Darshan,

    You could use regular expression, like this:

    FIND FIRST OCCURRENCE OF REGEX `[a-zA-Z]`

          IN text OFFSET off.


    text+off(1), then is what you wanted.

    Darshan,

    In the above example !!!!!!Darshan!!!!!, what do you mean by a wild character? Are you looking to find the 'D' or the first '!'?
