Hi to all

I'll describe my situation first:

I work batch.
Every night I get a file that copied from some open enviroment server to MF.
The file is sequential and of variable length(VB).
The LRECL is every time different, with maximum of 400.

The COBOL program that processes the file gets the fixed length(FB) file as an input.
I am trying to convert the file I get(VB) to fixed length(FB) file.

I tried IEBGener, but I get "Conflicting DCB Parameters" messege.
I tried Syncsort but got ABEND 016 with message of same sense.

Maybe there is some parameter in Syncsort or in Iebgener or any other utility that I can use to solve the situation?
I remind you that I work batch.
Thanks

Hi Jack,

With sort, there is this:
Quote:
The CONVERT parameter is used in conjunction with the OUTREC parameter to convert
variable-length records to fixed-length records.


Need more info?
