I want to move the fields to left justified. Field delimiter should be moved accordingly. The output should be
Code:
----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8
********************************* Top of Data **********************************
200612|50|43557|27277056.000|258510372.310|3541025.000

******************************** Bottom of Data ********************************


Is it possible?

Using DFSORT's SQZ function, you can squeeze out the blanks. Go to DFSORT/ICETOOL Reference Material to look up "Squeeze out blanks or other characters" in Smart DFSORT Tricks

akshaiya,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. You'll need z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90007 or DFSORT R14 PTF UK90006 (April, 2006) in order to use DFSORT's SQZ function. 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 DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC BUILD=(1,80,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT))

Thanks Frank and William.
Code:
ICE143I 0 BLOCKSET     COPY  TECHNIQUE SELECTED
ICE000I 1 - CONTROL STATEMENTS FOR 5740-SM1, DFSORT REL 14.0 - 11:58 ON THU FEB
            OPTION COPY
            INREC BUILD=(1,80,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT))
                              $
ICE006A 0 OPERAND DEFINER ERROR
ICE052I 3 END OF DFSORT


But it gives maxcc=16.
Do i need to add some libraries to recognise SQZ
