I have a flat file and I got a requirement to sort the file by including only the records that are having enddate less than 6/30/2006.

Here my problem is the date field is not in the date format..It is a Zoned Decimal field..(06302006 this is the date that is in the file)
How can I sort using that field?

Thank you,
Maheder

assuming field starts at pos 1
then this include should work

Code:
                                       
  INCLUDE COND=((05,4,LT,+2006),OR,                                 
          ((05,4,EQ,+2006),AND,(01,2,LT,+6)),OR,                   
          ((05,4,EQ,+2006),AND,(01,2,EQ,+6),AND,(03,2,LT,+30))),   
  FORMAT=ZD           


you don't sat what your sort requiement is

Hi,
The other solution is ,,change the input file structure to have yyyymmdd and then directly use the LT option in SORT card.

Thank you
