I'm presuming that you want to use a SORT program, but you're going to have to provide more details.

My requirement is to remove the trailor record from Input file and add the "AMOUNT VALUE" present in it (trailor record) to the one coming from the Input file.

Hi,

This should be doable using SORT but we do need some better information as asked earlier.

'Better information' would comprise:

- LRECL & RECFM of input/output file.
- How can one identify the trailer reocrd.
- At what position 'AMOUNT VALUE' starts
- 'position' of value 'coming from input file'

I hope once we get above details, you might fetch some good replies...Good Luck.. icon_smile.gif
