Hi,

I have a sequential file which contains packed decimel fields and binary fields. My requirement is to convert this to a file having fields which is readable(displayable).

Is there any utility available for this? Could any one help me on this?

Thanking you in advance!

Prajesh

You can use DFSORT to convert PD and BI fields to readable form. See the following for more details:

Syncsort could do the same thing using the OUTFIL parameter too.
