Hi,

I have a requirement where the position of the decimal point need to vary depending upon the input amount calculated.

Using the EDIT clause, we can only specify a format that would be same throughout the file for all records as given in the below sort card.

OUTREC BUILD=(65:65,16,ZD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIT.TTTTTT),
SIGNS=(,-))

But depending on the o/p, Is there any option to vary the formatting fields?

I have attached below a sample o/p expected according to my requirement.

Code:

----7----+----8-
   101000.000000
-100500000.00000
-100500000.00000
   -15000.000000
   -15000.000000
   -15000.000000
   132000.000000
   132000.000000
   132000.000000

You can use DFSORT's IFTHEN clauses to reformat different records in different ways.

It's not clear what "rules" you want to use to reformat your records one way or the other so I can't give you specifics, but the basic IFTHEN clause syntax would be something like this:

Code:

   OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(condition),BUILD=(items)),
      IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,BUILD=(items))


For more information on DFSORT's IFTHEN clauses, see:

Frank,

Thank you. I was able to solve the issue with the below IFTHEN-WHEN condition, in the sort card.

Code:

OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(45,13,SFF,GE,+999999999.99),
      OVERLAY=(45:45,13,ZD,EDIT=(IIIIIIIIIT.TT), 
              SIGNS=(,-),                         
              58:58,16,ZD,EDIT=(IIIIIIIIIIIIT.TT),
              SIGNS=(,-))),                       
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=(45,13,SFF,LT,+999999999.99),
      OVERLAY=(45:45,13,ZD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIT.TT), 
              SIGNS=(,-),                         
              58:58,16,ZD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIIIIT.TT),
              SIGNS=(,-)))                       


Thanks.

Hi Vidhya,
As Frank has suggested... for second ifthen no need to check the value of field, you can use WHEN=NONE

Code:

OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(45,13,SFF,GE,+999999999.99),
      OVERLAY=(45:45,13,ZD,EDIT=(IIIIIIIIIT.TT), 
              SIGNS=(,-),                         
              58:58,16,ZD,EDIT=(IIIIIIIIIIIIT.TT),
              SIGNS=(,-))),                       
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
      OVERLAY=(45:45,13,ZD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIT.TT), 
              SIGNS=(,-),                         
              58:58,16,ZD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIIIIT.TT),
              SIGNS=(,-)))
