Hi..

I need to change a field length as well as the file length,
My file has the layout as given below,

Field1 - 1-20 (length20)
Field2 - 21-50 (length 30)
Field3 - 51-100(length 50)
Field4 - 101-180(length 80)

Total file length is 180.

Need an output like

Field1 - 1-20 (length20)
Field2 - 21-50 (length 30)
Field3 - 51-90(length 40)
Field4 - 91-145(length 55)

Total file length is 145.


_________
Thanks
Balukanna

Assuming you want the first 40 bytes from Field3 and the first 55 bytes from field4, you can use a DFSORT job like this:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/180)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/145)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC BUILD=(1,90,101,55)
