Hi

I had to reformat my dataset by appending 20 bytes in front and then input fields.lrec =120

1------------------2021--[input fields]-------------120

The first 20 bytes should have following information

cnt1- 6 bytes PD
Cnt2- 2 bytes ZD
date(yyyymmdd) 4 bytes BI (binary )
Date2(yyyymmdd) 4 bytes BI
Filler 4 bytes

total 20 bytes

Can you give me the syntax to insert Current date in Binary format ?

What are the values for cnt1, cnt2, date2 and filler?

What does the 4-byte binary yyyymmdd date look like in hex - is it just yyyymmdd converted to binary (for example, 20070223 = X'01323F4F')?

Frank,

The values to hold are

Cnt1 - 6 bytes PD value 0
Cnt2 - 2 bytes ZD value 0
Date1(yyyymmdd) 4 bytes BI (binary ) -Current date
Date2(yyyymmdd) 4 bytes BI - Current date
Filler 4 bytes Value Spaces

Yes it is just the yyyymmdd format converted to binary.

I tried many combinations in outrec like DATE1Z,DATE=(MD4,TO=BI,LENGTH=4) ,date3P is also not helpful. .please give the correct syntax.

Thanks,
Deepa.

Thanks a lot!

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

/S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
/SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
/SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/100)
/SORTOUT DD DSN=... output file (FB/120)
/SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC BUILD=(DATE1,9:1,100)
  OUTREC BUILD=(X'00000000000C',C'00',
    1,8,ZD,TO=BI,LENGTH=4,1,8,ZD,TO=BI,LENGTH=4,4X,
    9,100)
