sathish,

You can "remove" columns using DFSORT, but exactly how depends on the RECFM and LRECL of your input file. For example, if you input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, you could use a DFSORT job like the following to remove columns 20-25:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/74)
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   OUTREC FIELDS=(1,19,26,55)
