I have a file with a particular field described as packed decimal that is comp-3.
This field may have values or may have spaces also.
How can i initialise this field to some numeric value(lets say 0) if it has spaces in it with the help of sort??
lets assume that the field starts from 60 and length is 8.

You can use the following DFSORT job to replace 8 blanks in the PD field with PL8'0':

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(60,8,CH,EQ,C' '),
     OVERLAY=(60:+0,TO=PD,LENGTH=8))
