Reply with quote

Hello,

I have a sequential file and i want to change the value on a particular position for every record.

It's like i want to put value of 05 for position 82-83 for all the records in the file. I do not want to check what value is present previously at that position.

i am using RA=(82,83,C'10',C'05')

but the problem with above command is, i need to give the value to be changed.

How it can be achvd either using file-aid or any other command.

Thanks & Regards
Rashmi

I am assuming you are running PGM=FILEAID and RA is short for replace all. You can you the move command which can be shortened to MV.
Code:
MOVE=(82,C'05')

thanks but this command will put all other bytes to spaces.
I think Repalce will do it in file-aid. I am managed to do it.

thanks for your help.

go to 3.6 in file-aid menu

use U Update - Preview and Update globally

i used following
82 2 R C'05'
in the search/update criteria. This option will replace values of 2 bytes at position 82 of the file to 05. When i was using RA it required both search string value and repalce string value. But here only replace value is required that's what i wanted.

I hope i am clear.
Regards
Rashmi
