Hi,

I have a requirement to write the day of the week (Sunday, Monday etc or a number indicating the same) to an output file. Can this be done using sort?

Thanks,
Aneesh.

Aneesh,

The following DFSORT/ICETOOL job will give you the desired results.It will write a three byte value for the day of week. mon, tue, wed, thu, fri, sat, sun

Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN     
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*   
//SYMNAMES DD *               
MYDAY,S'&LWDAY'       
//SORTIN   DD *               
SAMPLE                         
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*         
//SYSIN    DD *               
  SORT FIELDS=COPY             
  INREC BUILD=(MYDAY)   
//*
