Hi,

My file format is as follows.

RECFM=VB,LRECL=3000

09949493940.............NHDFJFK0916000098EPT4949489349.......

I want to copy the above file by changing EPT4(comes at position 580) to EPT2. Else is same.

Could anybody help me in this regard ?

Use INREC and BUILD/OVERLAY for your requirement. As it is VB make sure to include 4 bytes for RDW.

skrishnavijay,

If you do not have any records shorter than 588, then you can use the following:
Code:

OUTREC FIELDS=(1,583,584,4,CHANGE=(4,C'EPT4',C'EPT2'),588)

However, if you do not know the length of your shortest record, you can use HISTOGRM to determine this.
