Something like StartingPosition,Length,ZD,TO=PD?
Or:
SyncSort for z/OS Programmer’s Guide wrote:
The first field (1,10,ZD,PD) begins in position 1. This field was a 10-byte ZD field that
began in position 1 before OUTREC processing. It will be converted to a 6-byte PD field
in the output record, because 6 bytes are required to contain 10 decimal digits as a PD
field.

Hello,

If the target field is COMP, TO=PD won't work as needed. They are not the same format. . . PD is Packed Decimal (COMP-3).
