Hi,

I have a sort card

SORT FIELDS=COPY
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(2,15,CH,EQ,C'BUSINESS DATE :'),
OVERLAY=(17:DATE))

This gives me the date in the format BUSINESS DATE :12/10/08.

My requirement is to replace the slashes with '-' such that the output looks like

BUSINESS DATE :12-10-08.

Can some modifications be done in the sort card to meet my requirement?

//SORTIN   DD *                                     
 BUSINESS DATE :                                   
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSIN    DD *                                     
 SORT FIELDS=COPY
