Reply with quote

Hello,
I would like to convert some fields of my file. The file was created using a cobol program. The fields are PIC 9(14)v9(4) comp-3 OR PIC 9(18) COMP-3. ...

Could you help my to unpack theses fields to a readable numeric format (zd?) using icetool.

Thank you very much

Those would be 10-byte PD fields. You can convert them to 18-byte ZD fields using a DFSORT INREC statement. Here's a DFSORT job that shows how. I assumed the 10-byte PD field starts in position 11 and the input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but you can change the job appropriately for other positions and attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/88)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC FIELDS=(1,10,
    11,10,PD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=18,
    21,60)
