    Using spaces in validation routine Check characters at position

    When the MARC source field contains a space character encoded as blank ( ) or caret (^) at the specific position, how to use the validation routine "Check characters at position" in your Normalization rules to cover both cases?


    If the position in question is 21, use the following:

    21@@ ^  

    Please note that there is an additional blank character between @@ and ^ - this is on purpose.
