Hi,

We have a sorted report in which we have to perfom two functions,

1) pick up the maximum timestamp
2) Get the total number of records

For this we used the OUTFIL and MAX in the following format

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=(1,10,CH,A)
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,
    SECTIONS=(1,10,
      TRAILER3=(1,10,
          MAX=(1,10,CH,TO=CH,LENGTH=10)))


it is giving syntax error, anybody has previously used it or have idea about usong it.

Can any body suggest on this?

Thanks,
ksk

ksk,

When I run your job with DFSORT, I get:

Code:

                   MAX=(1,10,CH,TO=CH,LENGTH=10)))
                             $                     
ICE223A 0 REPORT FIELD ERROR                       


You can't use CH format in MAX. You need to use a numeric format like ZD. This works:

Code:

    MAX=(1,10,ZD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=10)))
