It has been a while since I've used VEDIT, and, the interface and commands aren't coming back to me. I have a bunch of text files where I need to remove data in specific columns. For example, I need to remove (delete) columns 58 - 61 for all the records in the file. In certain instances, I would also like to insert blank columns. I am having trouble establishing the column block. I don't remember it being that difficult previously. Help specifies Column_Begin(n) and Column_End(n) where n is the column numbers. Also tried using the mouse to select the columns, but, noting seems to get highlighted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
