Hi,

My input file has a Packed decimal of length 7.

I want to select the records which contain 4th digit as 3, 5th digit as 0 and 6th digit as 9 in the packed decimal.

Please help.

Thanks,
OP

Do you mean 7 digits or a width of 7 bytes?

Assuming width=4 bytes (so digits=7), and field starts in position 1, this works:

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=COPY                 
  INCLUDE COND=(3,1,CH,EQ,X'09',AND,
        (2,1,CH,EQ,X'03',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'13',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'23',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'33',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'43',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'53',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'63',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'73',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'83',OR,     
         2,1,CH,EQ,X'93'))

OP,

This DFSORT INCLUDE statement will do what you asked for:

Code:

   INCLUDE COND=(2,2,BI,EQ,B'....001100001001')
