Hi,

I need to do a change in a particular field of my FB dataset of LRECL say 10.

The file has data for only one field (amount) of LRECL 10.

That field is in Numeric edited format (eg: PIC 99.99).
the outcome should be of Implicit decimal format (eg: PIC 99V99). The output file should have same LRECL.

Sample input records:
0000206.00
0000105.00

Can you please help me out with a DFSORT or ICETOOL?

//SYSIN DD *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(1:5,10,SFF,TO=ZD,LENGTH=10)

Ekta,

Actually, that should be:

Code:

  INREC BUILD=(1,10,UFF,TO=ZD,LENGTH=10)


pattabiraman.baskaran,

Your post is rather confusing. You say the input field is PIC 99.99 (5 bytes) and the output field is PIC 99V99 (4 bytes), but then you show the input records with 10-byte numeric fields as PIC 9999999.99. So it's difficult to tell what you really want.
