Hi,

I got a requirement to delete two columns from a record having 7 columns.

The column position starts from pos (7 to 10) and from (15 to 30).

The lrecl of my file is 80. and the output record's lrecl = 60.

This can be achieved by some DFSORT card it seems.

Could you all please help me regarding this.

Use outrec to get what ever the fileds you want.

Ex : Input is having NAME:1 to 10 , SSN: 11 to 20, DOB: 21 to 30

If you want only NAME and DOB you can give like

OUTREC FIELDS=(1:1,10,11:21,30) here i haven't given SSN

The DFSORT job for that would be as follows:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN  DD DSN=...  input file (FB/60)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/40)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,6,11,4,31,30)
