Dear all,
I am facing on this problem: how can I treat -"- as a normal character in order to be recognized with string function.
As example I have - replace diagnosis= subinstr(diagnosis,":","",.) - but I would like to replace every " instead of :.
The command would be - replace diagnosi= subinstr(diagnosi," " ","",.)- , but it doesn't work (too few quotes).
Any help or idea?

Thank you very much

Paolo Grillo
