Hierarchy Level


Specify a character to identify where stripping of characters occurs in a client name. Stripping removes characters to the right of each instance of the specified character, plus the character itself. The stripping begins with the rightmost separator character.

Use the separator statement with the count statement to determine which characters in a client name are stripped. If the specified number of separator characters (count) exceeds the actual number of separator characters in the client name, stripping stops at the last available separator character.
