I have a PS file of LRECL 700. I need to insert current date at the end of the file. The date format I need to insert is mmddyyyy. Now my LRECL should be 708. Please let me know the optimumway of acheiving this.

Thanks in advance,
Chinni.

I assume you mean "at the end of the record" rather than "at the end of the file"... No matte, have you looked at the sort manual? What you ask is very simple and efficient, something like a sort/copy with an outrec to add the extra 8 bytes. You do have access to a manual, don't you?

Chinni,

Here's a DFSORT job that will insert the current mmddyyyy date at the end of each record:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                   
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                   
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/700)   
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/708)
//SYSIN    DD    *                         
  OPTION COPY                             
  INREC OVERLAY=(709:DATE1)               
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,700,701:713,4,709,4)
