I have a file with data as below
M**********xxxxxxxx*****************
V*************************xxxxxxxx**

When the first variable is 'M':
I have to check if the xxxxxxxx location is spaces. If it is spaces, I need to replace it with a some hard-coded date.
When the first variable is 'V':
I have to check if the other xxxxxxxx location is spaces. If it is spaces, I need to replace it with a some hard-coded date.

Can this be done using Syncsort?

Hi kkxlnc,
Use the below code

Code:
SORT FIELDS=COPY
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,1,CH,EQ,C'M',AND,12,10,CH,EQ,C'XXXXXXXXXX'),OVERLAY=(12:C'12/10/2009')),
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,1,CH,EQ,C'V,AND,25,10,CH,EQ,C'XXXXXXXXXX'),OVERLAY=(12:C'11/10/2009'))


Here i am assuming that the hard coded date which you are inserting is different in both cases.If the hard coded value is same you can use the second condition along with first codition using OR keyword.
