Can we do the divide operation in sort? For ex, I have to divide the numeric column by 4 for particular record. How to perform this?

You can do arithmetic with numeric fields and decimal constants (+n and −n) using the operators MIN (minimum), MAX (maximum), DIV (division), MUL (multiplication), MOD (modulus), ADD (addition) and SUB (subtraction). The order of evaluation precedence for the operators is as follows, but can be changed by using parentheses: 1. MIN and MAX 2. MUL, DIV and MOD 3. ADD and SUB
This is from DFSORT getting started...

You should have given more details. However, as an example, if you want to divide the ZD value in positions 11-15 by 4, you could use DFSORT control statements like this:
This will give you a 5-byte ZD integer result. For example if you divided 00021/4 the result would be 00005.
If you need more specific help, you need to give more details of what you want to do exactly.
