Vino,

You can use a DFSORT job like this to do what you asked for. The 1500 byte records will be padded on the right with blanks to create 1700 byte records.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/1500)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/1700)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(1700:X)
