Hi All

I have an input file having date field AT 15th position in I/P file
The code is as below:

Code:

//SORTIN   DD  DSN=i/p file which has date field at 15th position,
//             DISP=SHR                             
//SORTOF01 DD  DSN=o/p file 1 ,           
//             DISP=OLD           
//SORTOF02 DD  DSN=o/p file 2,   
//             DISP=OLD           
//SYSIN    DD  *                                   
   SORT FIELDS=(1,2,BI,A,3,2,BI,A,5,2,BI,A,7,4,BI,A,
                11,2,BI,A,13,2,BI,A,15,10,CH,A)     
  OUTFIL FILES=01,INCLUDE=(15,10,CH,LE,&DATE1(-)+1)
  OUTFIL FILES=02,INCLUDE=(15,10,CH,GT,&DATE1(-)+1)
/*


As of now this syntax works fine .

My requirement is that "Instead of &DATE1 ... i want the DATE to be passed thru a DSN which will have date as '12082006')

You can put the date in a DFSORT Symbols data set:

Code:

//SYMNAMES DD DSN=ds1,...  (FB/80)
...
//SYSIN DD *
  OUTFIL FILES=01,INCLUDE=(15,10,CH,LE,Mydate)
  OUTFIL FILES=02,INCLUDE=(15,10,CH,GT,Mydate)


where ds1 has:

Mydate,'12082006'
