Hi,

I have a input file whose LRECL = 100, i want to remove the last field that is 9 characters.

So the LRECL of my output file should be 91 after excluding the last field.

Thanks in advance for your suggestion.

Thanks

maxsubrat,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD DSN=...  input file (FB/100)
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=...  output file (FB/91)
//SYSIN    DD *
   OPTION COPY
   INREC BUILD=(1,91)
/*


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
