Hi ,
could u answer me this question?
One file is already there....( let us take that as input file) So, using
sort, I hv to copy that file to another file.
That new file should contain 1 to 31 cols as same as input file. But 32nd
char should be replaced with 'B' and remaining characters should be BLANK?

thanks in advance
suresh

Hi,

This will work...try it.
Code:

//DFSORT  EXEC PGM=ICETOOL 
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*     
//DFSMSG   DD SYSOUT=*     
//IN1    DD DSN= <input file >
//OUT1    DD DSN= <output file >
//TOOLIN DD *                           
  COPY FROM(IN1) TO(OUT1) USING(CPY1)   
/*                                                         
//******************************************************* 
//CPY1CNTL DD *                                           
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,31,32:C'B')                           
/*

Well, that will give you the first 31 bytes and the 'B', but it won't give you the blanks. Here's a DFSORT job that will do what was asked for. I've assumed the input file had RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other LRECLs.

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  outpuf file (FB/80)
//SYSIN DD *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,31,C'B',80:X)
