Hi,

I need to send a file as mail attachment.
the file layout is:

Code:

mubs;1,234;20/01/2007
name;89,00;19/01/2007


i want to separate the fields based on semicolon and not commas.
the file sent as attachment should be:

Code:

mubs 1,234 20/01/2007
name 89,00 19/01/2007


please let me know what is the best way out.

Thanks & Regards,
Mubs

I'm not sure if this is what you had in mind, but you could use DFSORT to parse and change the records for output. I assumed that fields could actually be different lengths in different records and added a record to show that.

You'll need z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90007 or DFSORT R14 PTF UK90006 (April, 2006) in order to use DFSORT's PARSE and SQZ functions. If you don't have the April, 2006 PTF, ask your System Programmer to install it (it's free). For complete details on all of the new DFSORT and ICETOOL functions available with the April, 2006 PTF, see:

www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/software/sort/mvs/peug/

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
mubs;1,234;20/01/2007
name;89,00;19/01/2007
another;5,12;21/03/2007
/*
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,
    PARSE=(%01=(ENDBEFR=C';',FIXLEN=10),
           %02=(ENDBEFR=C';',FIXLEN=10),
           %03=(FIXLEN=15)),
        BUILD=(%01,%02,%03)),
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,
      BUILD=(1,35,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT,MID=C' ')))
/*


SORTOUT would have:

Code:

mubs 1,234 20/01/2007   
name 89,00 19/01/2007   
another 5,12 21/03/2007

We can also use ALTSEQ CODE to replace the ";" (semicolon) with " " (space) to achieve the same thing, as from your question you mean by separating the fields by replacing the semicolon with a space.

Frank, Correct me if i am wrong.

Dinesh.

Dinesh,

Yes, you're right. That would be a simpler solution in this case. I guess I overthought it. icon_redface.gif (But it did give me a chance to show off PARSE.) icon_lol.gif

Mubs,

The DFSORT control statements for that would be:

Code:

   OPTION COPY
   ALTSEQ CODE=(5E40)
   INREC FIELDS=(1,m,TRAN=ALTSEQ)


where m is the length of your records.
