Hi - in a file if there is a packed decimal field containing incorrect data, how can we validate using SORT.

DFSORT has a facility to do that
Code:
 (p,m,FS,EQ,NUM)


is there a way to check using SYNCSORT?

SyncSort for z/OS 1.3 Programmer’s Guide wrote:
The NUM Subparameter
Use NUM to identify a field as numeric or non-numeric in CSF/FS, PD or ZD format. Specify NUM with the field (p,l), format (CSF/FS, PD or ZD) and comparison operators (EQ or NE)
