what I have ended up doing is similar to some ideas suggested:
input # linkv @1 ; * a specified line number;
_from='09'x||'09'x; * tab tab;
_to='09'x || ' ' || '09'x; * tab space tab;
do until (b=oldb);
because it was a wide file and many null values there were instances
of many tabs in a row.
Many thanks to all for suggestions.
