Posted: Fri Mar 20, 2009 12:45 am    Post subject: Conidtion based Conversion of fields to PD format

Here is what i am doing

 Code: SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                    OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,5,CH,EQ,C'ABCDE',OR,1,5,CH,EQ,C'XYZKW'),             BUILD=(1,105,                                                              106,12,SFF,PD,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTT.T),LENGTH=6,                          118,12,SFF,PD,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTT.T),LENGTH=6,                          130,12,SFF,PD,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTT.T),LENGTH=6,                          142,30,                   172,5,SFF,PD,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTT.T),LENGTH=2))

What i am trying to do is Converting 12 byte values ( it is general Decimal number like +123456789.5) to 6 Byte packed Decimal if condition 1,5 character matches to certain value.

It is giving a syntax error now..saying EDIT can appear only once.

Since you want to convert to PD, why are you using EDIT?

 Code: ...    106,12,SFF,PD,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTT.T),LENGTH=6,     ...

You can't convert to PD and use EDIT - you get to choose one or the other.

 Code: 106,12,SFF,PD,LENGTH=6,

would convert to 6-byte PD. Remove the EDITs.
