Hi Barb. I've tried a number of things, including the 0/0 option. I also tried using a single variable for the search format vs. the file format. Nothing worked. However, I did discover one thing that made this work! For the flags, if I turn on the case sensitive flag (2) in addition to the search next flag (1), it works! I don't know why the case sensitivity would matter for numbers, but it apparently does.
SEARCHFILE (DATAFILE,1511) SEARCH$ 0 0 1 3,EXCP=SHOWLIST
SEARCHFILE (DATAFILE,1511) SEARCH$ 756 0 1 3,EXCP=SHOWLIST
Both of these commands now work with flags set to 3 instead of 1. I can program around the case sensitivity flag so it finds all results for strings.
