Data Scrubbing Functions In DB2 For i
Hey, Mike:

Imagine a character database field that stores a phone number. No formatting rules are involved, so the values in the column vary such as 8370155738, 837/015-5738, 837-015.5738, etc. We'd like to write an RPG program that allows the user to enter a number, formatted or not, onto the screen and if that string of numbers is found in the table's phone column, show it to the user.
