Hi,

I have a flat file FB - 80 bytes - i need to eliminate any recorsd which have any character in the first 20 characters as non-numeric. (Basically only those records which have all the first 20 bytes as numeric should be written to the output file.)

Is there any direct numeric check available in syncsort?

Thanks,
Aneesh.

Hello Aneesh,

This code should produce the desired results:
Code:
//SYSIN DD *                 
   SORT FIELDS=COPY         
   OMIT COND=(1,20,ZD,NE,NUM)


Regards,

... Likewise you could also code
Code:
//SYSIN DD *                 
   SORT FIELDS=COPY         
   INCLUDE COND=(1,20,ZD,EQ,NUM)
