Hi,
My requirement is I have to change the key length value in VSAM file.
the key length is 36. I want to change the value of the field starting from 24th place to another value.And writes the output to sequential file.
I am giving the SORT condition like this.

The total record length of the input file is 1036.
The input file is VB file and we are writing it to sequential VB file.

SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTREC BUILD=(1,4,5:1,23,24,8,CHANGE=(8,C'ABCMN006',C'LOCAL '),
32:32,1000)

We are getting the error "OUTREC HAS OVERLAPPING COLUMNS SPECIFIED ".

Any help on this is highly appreciated.

Regards,
Rohit.

Ah-ha! The keyword is the "SYNCSORT" in the Subject. Now it's in the correct forum.

In your outrec build,first u r copying the first 4 bytes from the input file and then in the 5th position again you are copying from the first byte till 23. Here overlapping columns are specified and hence the error.

If you do not want to write the RDW to the output twice, then you can simply code:
Code:

//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,23,24,8,CHANGE=(8,C'ABCMN006',C'LOCAL '),
  32:32,1000)

However, if you have some reason why it is necessary, then you can modify the last field position as follows:
Code:

//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,4,5:1,23,24,8,CHANGE=(8,C'ABCMN006',C'LOCAL '),
  36:32,1000)

If neither of these provide the desired output, then please post the new error message produced.

rohit,

Code:
OUTREC - SHORT RECORD


This clearly states that the record length of few records in your VB file is less than the condition specified in your OUTREC BUILD.

rohit,

Search this forum for VLSHRT and use that parameter in your sort card.

Sorry - I missed that in your original post.

Try this:
Code:

//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,4,5:1,23,24,8,CHANGE=(8,C'ABCMN006',C'LOCAL '),
  36:32)
