Hi Friends,

A cobol program writes a file in which a field's pic is S9(5)V9(4).
So the file has value like 00021945{. I want to convert this using sort so that the sign of the field comes seperately like 000219455-.
I can't change the program. I need to do this in sort.

thanks for all ur help in advance

Hi all,

Found the answer myself.
using outfil outrec with edit and sign field will solve this problem

OUTFIL OUTREC=(1:1,9,ZD,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTT),SIGNS=(+,-,,))

I'm glad you figured it out yourself. But just for clarification so other people aren't confused:

These two statements don't match up. The first one says you want a trailing sign, but the edit mask you show is for a leading sign. If you really want a trailing sign, then the edit mask would be:

Code:

EDIT=(TTTTTTTTTS),SIGNS=(,,+,-)
