Hi,
I have a input file which has an amount field in the edited numeric format ' 00000005413.75'. I want to convert this into packed decimal. Is there someway to do it using SORT? I could find ways to convert PD to edited numeric and not the other way round. And my input format is not ZD.
Could someone help me out please?

Thanks,
Sathya

You can use use DFSORT's UFF or SFF formats to handle values like that and TO=PD to convert to packed decimal. For example, if your character value was in positions 1-15, you could use these DFSORT control statements:

Code:

   OPTION COPY                           
   INREC BUILD=(1,15,UFF,TO=PD,LENGTH=8) 


For more information on DFSORT's UFF and SFF formats, see:
