Hi Rupa.P.V,

Zoned-decimal, Packed-decimal, and Binary are all 'Fixed-Point' formats. That is, the virtual decimal point in the stored data never varies. As apposed to Floating-Point formats.

I think you probably mean to convert from a Zoned-Decimal Fixed-Point format:

PIC 9(6)V99

To a Numeric-Edited format

PIC 999,999.99

If you need to do this through DFSORT, You should re-post this in the VSAM/DFSORT forum and have Frank Yaegar take a look at it. Frank is the guru of DFSORT.
