Hi All,

Is it possible to read a comma delimited file using a DFSORT

For Ex:-

I have a input file like this
Code:

1,22,333,4444
1,2,3,4
1,,33,444


Output should be
Code:

1  22  333  4444
1  2   3    4
1      33   444


The length of
1st field is 1
2nd field is 2
3rd field is 3
4th field is 4

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

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
1,22,333,4444
1,2,3,4
1,,33,444
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC PARSE=(%1=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=1),
               %2=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=2),
               %3=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=3),
               %4=(FIXLEN=4)),
  BUILD=(%1,2X,%2,2X,%3,2X,%4)
