Hi,
I have a file which is in FBA format 909 bytes. But my application needs the file in FB format 908 bytes. I want to copy the data into the FB file. Can someone please advise?

Thanks,
Akshat

You failed to mention where the one byte of data is to be removed from - the beginning, the end, or somewhere in the middle. This would be your best option:
Code:

//COPY     EXEC PGM=SORT
//SORTIN   DD DSN=FBA 909 ...
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=FB 908 ...,RECFM=FB
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1:2,908) <= strip first byte
  <or>
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1:1,908) <= strip last byte
