hi Rao,

Use SORT with Control Card as follows


SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTFIL FNAMES=FIXOUT,VTOF,
OUTREC=(1:5,133)

FIXOUT is output DD name
OUTREC depened on your input file.

DFSORT's CONVERT (or VTOF) parameter on the OUTFIL statement can be used to convert a VB file to an FB file. If you want to copy the records, you'd also use OPTION COPY. If you want to sort the records, you'd use SORT. For more information on this, see the "VB to FB conversion" Smart DFSORT Trick at:
