Hi,
Wondering if it is possible, using DFSORT/ICETOOL to add a leading Zero to a field?
For example, if I have a line of data that looks like:

Code:

300105  64819673.11     .00     47680690.36     .00


and I need to change the data if there is no value in the one-dollar column to contain a 0.
That is for the above data the 2 fields with .00 should be 0.00
If the data had .05, I need it to be 0.05.

The file was originally created using FOCUS, and it cannot put only 1 leading 0.
I can use the File Manager tool to do it, but was wondering if DFSORT/ICETOOL can do this.

Thank-you for your time.

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
300105  64819673.11     .00     47680690.36     .00
300105          .11    5.00             .36   23.00
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(16,1,CH,EQ,C' '),
           OVERLAY=(16:C'0'),HIT=NEXT),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(24,1,CH,EQ,C' '),
           OVERLAY=(24:C'0'),HIT=NEXT),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(40,1,CH,EQ,C' '),
           OVERLAY=(40:C'0'),HIT=NEXT),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(48,1,CH,EQ,C' '),
           OVERLAY=(48:C'0'))
/*


SORTOUT will have:

Code:

300105  64819673.11    0.00     47680690.36    0.00 
300105         0.11    5.00            0.36   23.00
