I have a VB file where a field is S9(9) comp-3 starting at byte 44.

I need to pull records based on the first 3 digits (of value 040) of the comp-3 variable.

How can I do this?

Thanks,
Raghav

Either unpack the data or use one of DFSORT's the sub-field formats.
Have you looked at the manual?

Including RDW, Is 44th column, the starting position for a field S9(9) comp-3?

Please check with the following code for your requirement.
Code:
// EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=INFILE,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=OUTFILE,DISP=....
//SYSIN DD *
 OPTION COPY
 INCLUDE COND=((44,5,PD,GE,+040000000,AND,44,5,PD,LE,+040999999),OR,
 (44,5,PD,GE,-040999999,AND,44,5,PD,LE,-040000000))
/*
//

Thanks,
Shankar

Here's an easier way to do it with DFSORT:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (VB)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (VB)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INCLUDE COND=(44,2,BI,EQ,B'000001000000....')
