Hi,
I used the code posted in one of the forum (posted by me only) to remove a DOT ('.' ) from the input file record. But that code is not working for. I wish to know whether OVERLAY function is supported in DFSORT rel 14. Please see my sysout below.

Code:

ICE143I 0 BLOCKSET     COPY  TECHNIQUE SELECTED
ICE000I 1 - CONTROL STATEMENTS FOR 5740-SM1, DFSORT REL 14.0 - 09:32 ON THU OCT
            OPTION DYNALLOC=(SYSDA,9),FILSZ=E10000000
            SORT FIELDS=COPY
            INREC OVERLAY=(1,2,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT,PREBLANK=C'.'))
                  $
ICE013A 0 INVALID SORT OR MERGE STATEMENT OPERAND
ICE052I 3 END OF DFSORT

To use OVERLAY, you need DFSORT R14 PTF UQ95213. This PTF has been available since Dec, 2004 but your site has apparently not installed it.

To use SQZ, you need DFSORT R14 PTF UK90006. This PTF has been available since April, 2006 but your site has apparently not installed it.

Ask your System Programmer to install DFSORT R14 PTF UK90006 (it's free). This will get you all of the latest DFSORT functions (the Dec, 2004 PTF is a prereq for the April, 2006 PTF).

For complete information on all of the DFSORT/ICETOOL functions available with the Dec, 2004 DFSORT PTF, see:

For complete information on all of the DFSORT/ICETOOL functions available with the April, 2006 DFSORT PTF, see:
