Reply with quote

Hi,

I want to create the dataset on everyday with the following output

Code:
UIS GRAND HDR=20071105   
UIS GRAND TRL=0000000000


The 20071105 should be changed with the current date and it should be yyyymmdd format.

Please help me if we can do this by SORT.

Thanks,

Sounds like a fairly simple sort construction, have you checked there?
