Reply with quote

I am trying to CHANGE a value in a field using sort. I have one sortin file which I need to :

SORT FIELDS= (1,8,CH,A)
OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOF1...
OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOF2...

1) SORTOF1 = THE FULL SORTIN FILE
2) SORTOF2 = the full sortin and change a value in a field if another field has a certain criteria.

example.
Layout : pos 1-8 Name
pos 9-13 T-Nbr
pos 14-18 S-Nbr

SORTOF2 OUTREC=(1,8, IF T-NBR = 12345 THEN S-NBR = 65987 ELSE S-NBR = S-NBR)

Thanks.

You can use these DFSORT control statements to do what you asked for:

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=(1,8,CH,A)               
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOF1               
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOF2,               
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=(9,5,CH,EQ,C'12345'),
      OVERLAY=(14:C'65987'))
