hello,

Could you please suggest a way to convert a file with RECFM=U on TAPE to RECFM=FB on DISK. I tried using IEBGENER but i got an error that says " IEB336I INVALID COMMAND IN COL. 04 " where COL.04 os where the code SORT FIELDS=COPY starts at, in the SYSIN


Please help.

There is a link to manuals at the top of the page. Click on it, find the Utilities manual, and read up on the IEBGENER control statements. You will find that SORT FIELDS=COPY is not an IEBGENER control statement, hence the invalid command message.
