    Continuation fields in 5.0

    Wes Groleau

      I know this can be done in 8.0 but we have 5.02

      Just in case I can't talk anyone into upgrading,

      is there a way to do the following?

       

      Input is something like

      [font="courier"]

          12Z053   05  FB-description of FB               $123,456.89

                       BF-alternate description

          121004   05  L6-description of L6               $  6,987.00

          123123   05  L3-desc of L3 etc.                 $      1.05

                       IN-alt for IN etc.

          121R02   05  OM-desc One More with no alt       $      0.03

        /font[/quote]Output fields must be

        [font="courier"] 

      12Z053 , 05 , FB-description of FB , $123,456.89 , BF-alternate description

      121004 , 05 , L6-description of L6 , $  6,987.00 , <null>

      123123 , 05 , L3-desc of L3 etc.   , $      1.05 , IN-alt for IN etc.

      121R02 , 05 , OM-desc One More ... , $      0.03 , <null>

        /font[/quote]Everything I've tried either

        /size[list][]repeats the previous alternate when there is no current  OR[/size][]uses the next primary in place of the missing alternate  OR[/size][*]slurps up extra lines and appends them to the last alternate[/size][/list]

      thanks
