I need to display the previous date (current-date - 1) in the output file using SYNCSORT.

Can you please let me know how to do this.

My I/P file LRECL=80
RECFM=FB

Where in the output do you want the date? If it is simply as a HEADER record, then you can code the following:
Code:

//SYSIN DD *
    SORT FIELDS=COPY
    OUTFIL OUTREC=(1,80),HEADER2=(1:&DATE-1)
