Hi!

What's the simpler way of put the ',' character in position 4 in all records except the last one?

Input:
Code:
080
081
082
083


Output:
Code:
080,
081,
082,
083


If the input have only one record, the output should not have the ',' character.

Thank you in advance,
Bruno Oliveira

You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD *
080
081
082
083
/*
//OUT DD SYSOUT=*
//TOOLIN DD *
DATASORT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) TRAILER USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INREC OVERLAY=(4:C',')
  SORT FIELDS=(1,3,CH,A)
/*

That works great and is very simple (I didn't knew DATASORT statement)!
Thanks
