Reply with quote

Hi,

When I use HEADER1 and TRAILER1 in OUTREC, DFSORT is forcing me to use only FBA on RECFM. But I need to merge this output file with files that are RECFM=FB.

1. Is it possible to get SORTOUT which is RECFM=FB with HEADER and/or TRAILER defined in OUTFIL? OR

If #1 is not possible,

2. Is there a way to MERGE some FB files and some FBA files with SORTOUT having RECFM=FM with correct results?

Thanks,

You can use DFSORT's REMOVECC parameter to get FB instead of FBA for your OUTFIL reports. For example:

Code:

  OUTFIL REMOVECC,HEADER1=(...),TRAILER1=(...)


REMOVECC tells DFSORT to remove the ANSI carriage control character for an OUTFIL report. Thus, the data starts in position 1 instead of position 2 and RECFM=xB is used instead of RECFM=xBA.
