HI WHEN I AM REFORMATING THE VB FILE , I AM GETTING THE FOLLWOING ERROR CAN ANY BODY HELP ON THIS....
WHILE REFORMATING I NEED TO CHANGE 236 TH CHAR AS 'N' .
LENGH OF THE INPUT AND OUTPUT VB FILES ARE 1204.
Variable means that some of the records might not be as long as the max record size. The error is saying that at least one is shorter.
Have a look at the section on OUTREC in your sort manual, I think you will find a way to specify filling out the record from 237 to the end of the record without having to tell it how long the record is.
