You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN                       
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file       
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file                     
//SYSIN   DD *                             
   OPTION COPY                             
   INREC OVERLAY=(50:C'IND')     
/*         


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
