How to separate data from an input using the FILEREAD statement

Question:
I would like to know how to separate data from an input usingthe FILEREAD statement.

The data retrieved from the FILEREAD is comma-separated, and I wouldlike to extract this information into different variables.

For example:

Data extracted: Guy, Osborne, Quebec, Canada

From this I would like to extract:

  • Guy into a variable
  • Osborne into a variable
  • Quebec into a variable
  • Canada into a variable

Answer:
You can use the PFC service pfc_n_cst_string functionof_parsetoarray()to parse delimited strings into an arrayof strings, which would be better than named variables. Then, if youwant to put the data into named variables, simply copy the array element you wish to use.
