I have data that is variable length and can be continued in any field with the character "\". I have the following defined. But I am getting an error message when I try to run. Is anyone more familar with the continueif statement? I need the input line to continue to the next line when a "\" is encountered. I also tried with a single "\" and got the same error. the documentation says that format of the continueif is position = value. Position has to be a positve value > 0 and is in relation to the 1st char of the record. I have tried multiple different ways, but I always get a syntax error when anything other than a numeric is used to start the condition.

data looks something like this: There is no fixed position that the "\" will occur. 15^V12G^VThis is the\$ text$ 17^V14G^VThis is another line$ 19^V15G\$ \$ The text line$ 21^V16G^VAnother line$
