Subject: reverse concat
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
I need to remove dashes from social security numbers, and I'm having
To put them in I use the concat function in the compute dialog box:
I tried taking the dash out of the '-' parts; leaving it blank the
first time, like this --> ' '
and removing the space the second time, like this --> ''
I figured it would read as "From position 1 go 3 spaces, enter nothing,
From position 4 go 2 spaces, enter nothing" (instead of reading ' enter
Is there such a thing as unconcatenate?
Any tips would be appreciated.
