Hi,

I have a file of LRECL 78. Want to break every record in the file into 3 lines, each of 26 characters.

Input file:
2007-08-24-09.00.00.3435762007-12-24-09.00.00.4584542007-11-29-04.38.48.187116
2007-08-24-09.00.00.1896112007-12-24-09.00.00.1258852007-11-30-02.50.00.908645

My output file should contain:
2007-08-24-09.00.00.343576
2007-12-24-09.00.00.458454
2007-11-29-04.38.48.187116
2007-08-24-09.00.00.189611
2007-12-24-09.00.00.125885
2007-11-30-02.50.00.908645

Is there a way in ICETOOL to achieve this?

Karthik

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/78)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/26)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL BUILD=(1,26,/,27,26,/,53,26)
/*


You can, of course, do it with a DFSORT/ICETOOL COPY instead if you like.
