  IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,

I can tell you what the statements do, but without knowing what the input records look like, what you are trying to accomplish and what the expected output is, I can't tell you why those control statements are being used.

INREC statement: If position 147 has a C'-', do the first BUILD. Otherwise do the second BUILD.

BUILD: Creates a reformatted record from the input record.

c:p,m -> e.g. 41:122,10
c: -> the output position.
p -> the starting position of the input field
m -> the length of the input field

OUTFIL: If position 290 of the reformatted record has a C'1', write the record to the output file. Otherwise, discard the reformatted record.

This seems like an overly complex way to get the result. I would think that this would be better (unless there's something more going on then you're saying):

Code:

   INCLUDE COND=(147,1,CH,EQ,C'-')
   OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT,
      BUILD=(1:62,40,41:122,10,51:166,10,61:153,10,290:C'1')
