For eg: Amount field is 21.69 then internally in mainframe it is stored as Positive Value is stored as : FFFFFFFFFFF 00000002169 Negative value is stored as : FFFFFFFFFFD 00000002169 We need the Sort utility function to convert the X'F' to X'D' ( Last half byte), hence the Zoned decimal amount field will be converted to Negative amount.

Here's a DFSORT job that will change a positive value (C or F sign) to a negative value (D sign), but leave a negative value (D sign) as is. I assumed your 11-byte ZD value started in position 21 but you can change the job appropriately for other starting positions.

 Code: //S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN //SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=* //SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file //SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file //SYSIN    DD    *    OPTION COPY * If ZD value >= 0, change sign to minus (D).    INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(21,11,ZD,GE,+0),       OVERLAY=(21:21,11,ZD,MUL,-1,TO=ZD,LENGTH=11)) /*
