I have one flat file, file contains one packed decimal field and I want to convert it into zoned decimal by using sort utility.

Could anyone help me regarding this.

Thanks

Have you looked at a manual?
Are you planning to change the lrecl?
Have you looked at how your OUTREC will be coded?
I should think that you could, at least, show what you have so far......

You can use these DFSORT control statements:

Code:

   OPTION COPY
   INREC BUILD=(p,m,PD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=n)


p is the starting position of the PD input field. m is the length of the PD input field. n is the length of the ZD output field.

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
