Please show me an example of the records in your input file and what you want for output. Show examples of the type of values you're working with and what they look like in 9's complement. Also, what is the RECFM and LRECL of your input file?

You sent me the following information in a private message:

I need to sort on timestamp(79939139671438)

99999999999999 -- 9?s component

79939139671438 -- Value in the File

20060860328561 -- Actual value

Since each actual value is just the value in the file subtracted from 9's, you can just sort ZD descending:

Code:

   SORT FIELDS=(p,14,ZD,D)


where p is the starting position of the field.

If there's more to it than that, you need to explain further.
