This OUTREC statement reformats the input records for output as follows:

Output positions 1-5 = input positions 1-5
Output positions 6-7 = 'YY' if input positions 1-2 have 'XX'; otherwise input positions 6-7
Output positions 8-49 = input positions 8-49

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
