Hi all,

This is sample of my file layout

Code:

B7GL23X6SS109578 32637661 2007121 EC12N             {000200{
B4GP44R2TB131768 18946276 2007121 EC520L            {000673D
B4GP44R2TB131768 18946276 2007121 EC520L         DC {000150{


The amount in positions 54-60 is in the format PIC S9(005)V9(002) . I need to convert this to the readable format and when there is a dc it implies a negative amount which i have to display accordingly , in this example above it should say -15.00 .

Please advice .

You can use a DFSORT job like this to do what you asked for. You didn't show exactly what you want your output to look like so I'm taking a guess.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
B7GL23X6SS109578 32637661 2007121 EC12N             {000200{
B4GP44R2TB131768 18946276 2007121 EC520L            {000673D
B4GP44R2TB131768 18946276 2007121 EC520L         DC {000150{
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(50,2,CH,EQ,C'DC'),
    OVERLAY=(54:54,7,ZD,EDIT=('-IIIIT.TT'))),
   IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
    OVERLAY=(54:54,7,ZD,EDIT=(' IIIIT.TT')))
/*


For your example, SORTOUT will have:

Code:

B7GL23X6SS109578 32637661 2007121 EC12N             {    20.00
B4GP44R2TB131768 18946276 2007121 EC520L            {    67.34
B4GP44R2TB131768 18946276 2007121 EC520L         DC {   -15.00
