Hi,

When I use " TO=ZD " or " TO=PD " in any OUTREC, ex:

OUTREC FIELDS=(1:3,6,7:C'0',TO=PD,LENGTH=1)

I am getting " OPERAND DEFINER ERROR ".

Is this due to older version of DFSORT or I am doing any mistake.

We have 'DFSORT REL 14.0'


Thanks,
Asif

You're not using TO=PD correctly. You can't use TO=PD after a character constant like that. I'm guessing that you want to create a 1-byte PD constant of 0. If so, the correct syntax is:

Code:

   OUTREC FIELDS=(1:3,6,7:+0,TO=PD,LENGTH=1)


If that's not what you want to do, then tell me exactly what you want to do.

Thanks!
