Hi all,

I am having a situation where there is file in U (Undefined) RECFM=U format being created and now client want this file to be converted to a FB format and then send this via email.

PS: Frank Yaegar ,

Is there any method in DFSORT to convert this U format file to readable FB format so that it can be sent.

All replies appreciated!!

I'm not sure if you are required to use Sort but I'm pretty sure that you can do this with IEBGENER... icon_neutral.gif

And this has been recently discussed in the forum with IEBGENER, as search might help..

Hello,

What type of data is contained in the unformatted file?

What process on the mainframe created this file?

Once it is received in an e-mail how will it be used?

What should be the attributes of the fixed file that is created from this undefined data?

What are the rest of the attributes of the input data (other than U)?

Use XMIT/RECEIVE. SORT isn't the right tool for this job.

No. DFSORT does not support RECFM=U data sets.

If you post the answeers to these (any maybe more) questions, we will be better able to make suggestions.

Possibly - possibly not. It is better to post solutions when the requirement is understood.
