Hi,

I have a requirement to sort a file with a different value for a field. I am not sure of how to do it. Please help me.

Input File:
------------
Code:
0413....GNL......1.
0413....DDA......2.
0774....DDA......1.
0885....DDA......1.
0885....DDA......2;
0365....DDA......1;

I want to sort ths i/p file with the bytes (2-4) but I need to interpret the values of those fields with someother values and sort it. For example, a values in bytes 2-4 should be interpreted to the following:

Code:
413 - 280
774 - 280
885 - 096



So my i/p is sorted with interpreted values in the above table, but in the o/p my orginal values should come.

Output file:
-------------
Code:
0885....DDA......1.
0885....DDA......2;
0413....GNL......1.
0413....DDA......2.
0774....DDA......1.
0365....DDA......1;


Please someone help me doing this.

Hi,
try this
Code:
//S1       EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                                           
//SORTIN   DD *                                                       
0413....GNL......1.                                                   
0413....DDA......2.                                                   
0774....DDA......1.                                                   
0885....DDA......1.                                                   
0885....DDA......2;                                                   
0365....DDA......1;                                                   
/*                                                                     
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSIN   DD *                                                         
      SORT FIELDS=(81,3,BI,A)                                         
  INREC  IFTHEN=(WHEN=(02,3,CH,EQ,C'413'),                             
      OVERLAY=(81:C'280')),                                           
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(02,3,CH,EQ,C'774'),                             
      OVERLAY=(81:C'280')),                                           
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(02,3,CH,EQ,C'885'),                             
      OVERLAY=(81:C'096')),                                           
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(02,3,CH,EQ,C'365'),                             
      OVERLAY=(81:C'395'))                                             
      OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)

bharath,

Gerry's "solution" works for the data given but will not work for other variations of the data because there's no IFTHEN NONE clause. For example, if the input included this record:

0285....NEW......1.

It would be sorted as the first record instead of after the "280" records.

Here's a DFSORT job that will work for all variations of the data:

Code:

//S1       EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD *
0285....NEW......1.
0413....GNL......1.
0413....DDA......2.
0774....DDA......1.
0885....DDA......1.
0885....DDA......2;
0365....DDA......1;
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN   DD *
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(2,3,SS,EQ,C'413,774'),
      OVERLAY=(81:C'280')),
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=(2,3,CH,EQ,C'885'),
      OVERLAY=(81:C'096')),
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
      OVERLAY=(81:2,3))
    SORT FIELDS=(81,3,ZD,A)
    OPTION EQUALS
    OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)

Since the OP didn't originally give the LRECL of the input file, I assumed for the example that it was LRECL=80. The job would need to be changed appropriately for a different LRECL.
