Hi List,

i have a huge ASCII dataset with numeric values at fixed positions, no delimiters.

example-column: -0099.99 000234.1 123.5467

Any format i tried, reading those data, did not work, because of the varying position of the dot.

So i read it using strings. But conversion, using the number-function, dose not work either.

Any hints?

TIA, Hauke
