I want to subract two fileds in the same file

say position 1 to 14 and 15 to 29 , but they are in the format below (with a decimal point )
ex => 0.681331908400 0.681331908403

I tried 1,14,SFF,SUB,15,14,SFF in outrec , but the output is like
spaces for 14 byts and the end 3- .

0.681331908400 0.681331908403 3-

I want it as 0.00000000003-

Can any one help !

Since you didn't tell DFSORT how to edit the result, it used the default of M0. If you want DFSORT to edit the result in a specific way, you have to specify an edit mask. For example:

Code:

  OPTION COPY                                   
  INREC OVERLAY=(30:1,14,SFF,SUB,15,14,SFF,     
    EDIT=(T.TTTTTTTTTTTS),SIGNS=(,,,-))
