Hi all,
I have a sort card like the below way. input file is a VB flat file, output is a vsam file (FB).
Code:

SORT FIELDS=(54,10,ZD,A,39,2,CH,A,50,2,CH,A)
OUTFIL FILES=01,VTOF,                                           
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(50,2,CH,EQ,C'31'),                       
          BUILD=(1:54,10,                                       
                11:39,2,                                       
                13:50,2)),                                       
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(50,2,CH,EQ,C'34'),                       
          BUILD=(1:54,10,                                       
                11:39,2,                                       
                13:50,2))


when i run this in a job, in the output i am only able to see the data which is in character format. the other data which is in numeric/Packed decimal, it is showing as hexadecimal values.

Can anyone let me know how to remove this hexadecimal format for the numberic items.

Hello,

Why do you want to remove the packed/hex values? I suspect they were created in this format for some reason.

If the file definition for the vsam file includes comp-3 or comp fields, you will need to keep the current definitions.

Why is this a problem for you? If your only concern is "seeing" the values, you can look at the input file with "HEX ON".

Ram,

It's not clear what you want to do exactly.

If you want to convert numeric values like PD or BI to displayable form, you can use DFSORT's edit masks. See the following for more information:

Hi Frank,
I wanted to convert the PD data to a displayable form, it seems my problem can be solved by using edit masks.

Thanks for the reply
