Can we mention superscripts in hexadecimal equivalent in a sequential file?

My requirement is to print the 25th may in the statement, where th should be superscript. Could you please suggest on this.

Are you asking if there is an EBCDIC character "th" shown as a superscript, or separate letters "t" and "h" as superscripts, rather than two successive characters "th"?

Don't think so.

My first suggestion would be to have the requirement changed. . .

Where will the statements print?

If you must do this and the printout will go to networked laser printers that support PCL (Printer Control Language from HP), you could embed the escape sequences within the data to "program" the printer. If you are not familiar with PCL, i would not recommend this*. We once implemented a system that interleaved data and escape sequences to create and print forms (very much like turbotax does) "on the fly" on mainframe-connected laser printers. It was most tedious.

As i mentioned at the beginning, i'd recommend getting the requirement changed. . .

d

* The PCL info can be downloaded from many places on the web.
