I have two files, the input file is of 2000 LRECL and the output is of 2100 LRECL.

I want to copy the first 1000 bytes from the input file to the output, next 100 bytes of the output file should be spaces (I don't want to write anything) and the remaining 1000 bytes should contain the last 1000 bytes from the input file.

Hi,

The below sort card will solve your requirement,

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=COPY                     
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,1000,100X,1001,1000)


I hope it helps!

adarsh.bhalke,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN                                             
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                           
//SORTIN   DD DSN=....  input file (FB/2000)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/2100) 
//SYSIN    DD *                                                 
  OPTION COPY                                                   
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,1000,1101:1001,1000)                           
/*
