Hi,

I have the following requirement -

I have to convert all the leading spaces coming in an input record of length 8 bytes to ZEROS . The number of space can be variable

e.g INPUT file looks like

bb001003
bbb13457
b6789467

OUTPUT file should be
00001003
00013457
06789467

where b=SPACES

I want to accomplish this without using IF and BUILD .

You don't need IFTHEN and BUILD for this. You can do it quite easily with DFSORT's UFF format like this:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                               
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                               
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file                                         
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file                           
//SYSIN    DD    *                                     
  OPTION COPY                                         
  INREC OVERLAY=(1,8,UFF,M11,LENGTH=8)
