I need to create file with one record which will have two dates:
One is current date + 9 days and another date will be current date + 13 days.
Basically if job runs on 10/30, dates in file should be Nov 08 and Nov 12.
Please see below.

Code:
----+----1----+----2--
X2009-11-08X2009-11-12


Thanks

rmd3003,

use the following DFSORT JCL

Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                   
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                     
//SORTIN   DD *                             
DUMMY RECORD                               
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                     
//SYSIN    DD *                             
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                         
  INREC BUILD=(X,DATE1(-)+9,X,DATE1(-)+13) 
/*


this will create 1 record as follows. The current date today is 10/27/2009

Code:

 2009-11-05 2009-11-09 


if you want alphabet 'x' in between then use this

Code:

//SYSIN    DD *                                 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                               
  INREC BUILD=(C'X',DATE1(-)+9,C'X',DATE1(-)+13)
/*                                             


this will generate
Code:

X2009-11-05X2009-11-09
