Hi,

I have three files say A , B and C and i have a date field in the 179th column of each file. Earlier we are using File-Aid batch jcl to replace the old date with the new date in to the above 3 files. Since, It got expired we need to look for an alternative. I thought we can do the same with SORT.

Can anybody throw some light on me how i can achieve the above requirement using SORT.

Thnakful for your faster responses.

Thanks
Madhu K

Which format is the date in,
what are the rules for replacement,
What is the RECFM and LRECL of the input files,
