You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB)
//SYSIN   DD   *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(1:C'36')
/*


If your input file is VB, change the INREC statement to:

Code:

  INREC OVERLAY=(5:C'36')
