Hi,
I have a file in which the header record is incorrect (It should have low values from col 2 to 11). I want a sort step to introduce low values from col 2 to 11 i.e. 9 bytes.
How to do it.
I have tried

Code:

   SORT FIELDS=COPY
   OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(2:X'000000000000000000'))


But this changes all records. How to apply it to only the header record.

Yes it will change all the records..as you are doing overlay in WHEN=INIT
which applies to all records.

can you post sample input file. How header is identified? using some record type indicator? or positioned as first record?

Thanks for the reply Sambhaji,
My file has only one header positioned as first record (doesn't have any rec type indicator)

Assuming your LRECL is 80

Code:

//SYSIN    DD  *                                                   
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                 
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)),               
     IFTHEN=(WHEN=(81,8,ZD,EQ,1),OVERLAY=(2:X'000000000000000000'))
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)                                               
/*

Note that instead of 2:X'000000000000000000' you can use 2:9Z or 2:9X'00'.

Thanks Frank - Saw it after a long time icon_smile.gif
I had indeed used 2:9x'00'. But i did not know that i could use 2:9Z
