I have an input file contains 20071024. My outfile should be 10/24/2007

I used a control as follows,

OUTREC=(5,2,1x,7,2,1X,1,4)

Please help me out in finding, How to insert '/' in between the date field?

Code:

   OUTREC=(5,2,C'/',7,2,C'/',1,4)


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
