Subject: problems with delimiter on ascii file
I am reading in a delimited file with delimiter='|||' and the first 27
records read in fine and then it appears the file has an odd number of
delimiters in between two variables.for the rest of the file.
joe smith|||123 street|||chicago|||il|||11111
bob smith|||235 street|||||||11111
Is there a trick in the input statement to read the variable in spite of
missing information and an odd number of delimiters.
