Hi,

Is it possible to generate SEQNUM using alphabets instead of numbers?

Ex.:
Code:

Data1   a
Data2   b
Data3   c
.
.
.
.
Data26  z


Please suggest.

Thanks.

Using the utility pgm IEBDG you can generate records with A to Z in a specific column. See the manual in for an example of "ripple" thru an alphabetic pattern and run some tests.
