HI
I have in a program this test
where car eq '$$$$'
what is the meaning of this test
thanks breyt

RE: WHERE CAR EQ '$$'

$ is a masking or wildcard character indictating that ANY character in that position is acceptable.
The $* combination allows any sequence of zero or more charcaters.
Your example looks for values of car with a length of four characters.
