IN THE BELOW JCL CODE FOR CONVERTING A FILE FROM VB TO FB , HOW CAN WE MODIFY THE JCL SUCH AS TO ELIMINATE THE FIRST 4 CHARACTERS WHILE WRITING THE OUTPUT FILE

Code:

//STEP10   EXEC PGM=SORT                                         
//SORTIN   DD DSN=INPUT.FILE.1, DISP=OLD   
//SORTOUT1 DD DSN=OUTPUT.FILE,                       
//                DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                         
//                  DSORG=PS,                                         
//                RECFM=FB,                                         
//                LRECL=440,                                       
//                BLKSIZE=27720,                                   
//                DATACLAS=STANDARD                                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                           
//SYSIN    DD *                                                 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                               
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT1,VTOF,                                   
  OUTREC=(1:1,440)                                               
  END                                                           
/*                                                               
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*

The first four bytes of a VB record is the RDW. You would not normally include that when converting from VB to FB, so you'd use:

Code:

  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT1,VTOF,                                   
    OUTREC=(5,436)
