I have a file which is 32756 VB length file. The actual data in this file again is varied length. For example, first record is 841 length and second record is 994 etc. I want to add a hex character X '0A' at the end of each record. Can you help me with this?

I have to do this through JCL (may be through SAS or Sort or any other utility).

Hello,

I berlieve you misunderstood Expat's queston.

What happens when the record is already the maximum length before the x'0A' is appended?

This is easy to do in SAS as long as none of the records are already 32756 bytes long.

so what is the easy SAS solution when a record is 32756 before the addition of the extra byte to add the linefeed?

Code:
DATA _NULL_;
LENGTH DATALINE $ 32767;
INFILE DDIN LENGTH=RL;
INPUT @;
RECLEN = RL;
INPUT @1 DATALINE $VARYING. RECLEN;
SUBSTR(DATALINE, RECLEN+1, 1) = '0A'X;
RECLEN + 1 ;
FILE DDOUT;
PUT DATALINE $VARYING. RECLEN;
and as I said
