[Isis-users] Splitting a Field

the problem I see is how to do this if the sequence of subfields is not fixed : how do we know which ';' to replace by which subfield 'vdpk' ?

I can imagine it is possible if the sequence is fixed, but if it is not no way to do it. In principle in ISIS the sequence of subfields is not by definition fixed, e.g. ^b can come before ^a etc.

In ABCD there is in the FDT a column 'pre-literals' which is meant to match a separator in some input string to subfields. But again the sequence will need to be fixed.

Dear Experts,

I want to split a field into subfields having data stored as

 Source --> v10 = ^m256;12;103;;^i10242020

Target --> v10 = ^m256^v12^d103^p^k^i10242020

How it will be accomplished.
