Reply with quote

Hi,

Could you please help me in sorting a file with length 766 and put filler to make the LRECL as 1190.I wrote a sort card as below

Code:

   SORT FIELDS=COPY
   OUTREC FIELDS=(2,13,737,2,1175x)


The above SORT CARD made the LRECL as 1190 but did not copy the contents of the record.Only data in first 15 columns got written to a new sorted file.
Could anyone help to copy the entire content of file1 to file2 with the above requirement.

What does the fine manual say about the OUTREC statement.

You are taking 13 bytes from pos 2 and two bytes from pos 737 of the input, and then filling with blanks. Your output is what I would expect from that statement.

Hi,
the outrec fields say

copy 13 bytes from pos 2
copy 02 bytes from pos 737
followed by 1175 spaces

hence the results are correct.

ajay_udl,

Well, people told you what was wrong with the control statements you used, but they didn't tell you the best way to do what you want to do which would be:

Code:

   OPTION COPY
   INREC OVERLAY=(1190:X)


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
