Hi,

The input file may be Fixed block file or a Variable blocked file but I want to get the output file in the Fixed block file(4096 bytes) only.

The requirement is to make the files look uniform.

Can anyone pls help.

The code below copies a VB file of LRECL 197 to a FB file of 600

Code:

//DFSORT   EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD DSN=Input dataset (VB)
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=Output dataset,   (FB)
//            DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
//            SPACE=(CYL,(10,10),RLSE)
//SYSIN    DD * 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTFIL VTOF,
      BUILD=(5,193,600:X)
/*


To increase the length of a FB file

Code:

//DFSORT   EXEC PGM=SORT                                     
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                       
//SORTIN   DD DSN=Input file    <<< LRECL=100
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=Output file,   <<< LRECL=330               
//            DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
//            SPACE=(TRK,(75,75),RLSE)
//SYSIN    DD *                                             
 OPTION COPY                                                 
 INREC OVERLAY=(330:X)
