FINDREP function in DFSORT will serve your purpose....

Dick,

That alternate method (TRAN=ALTSEQ) only works for replacing one character with another. It can't be used to replace a word with another word. That requires FINDREP.

From the example you show, it appears you actually want 'gaurav' to be replaced by 'deepxx'. You could use these DFSORT control statements to do that:

Code:

  OPTION COPY                                   
  INREC FINDREP=(IN=C'gaurav',OUT=C'deepxx')
