Reply with quote

Hi,
I have 10 different files of diferent LRECL.
All the 10 files will have key from positon 1 to 12.
Eg:
file 1
00000000124K---$1245.32
file 2
00000000124K---ahkfhyt
etc.........

I need a 'generic' SORT card that appends 8 ZEROES in the front of each file.
Eg:
file 1 should be,
0000000000000000124K---$1245.32
file 2 should be,
0000000000000000124K---ahkfhyt
etc..........

Since each file is of differnet length i was not able to create a SORT card generic to all the files.
Kindly help me in resolving this issue. icon_biggrin.gif

Since the key is same for all the files, single card suffice for all the files.

Hi,
In the above mentioned examples,
file 1 is of LRECL = 23
file 2 is of LRECL = 22
I want to append 8 ZEROES infront of each record in both the files.
As far as i know I will use this,
FILE 1:
OPTION COPY
OUTREC FIELDS=(8Z,1,12,13,11)

FILE2:
OPTION COPY
OUTREC FIELDS=(8Z,1,12,13,10)

Here, both the SORT fields are different, and i cannot end up as 'generic'.

Can you prepare a 'generic' SORT card for me.

IIRC, all you should need is OUTREC FIELDS=(8Z,1).....

But it is giving,
OUTREC - ILLEGAL DATA FIELD -> error message.

OUTREC FIELDS=(8Z,1) -> Can you explain how will this work?
