Hi to All,

This is an IBM interview question,

Interviewer:

I have 100 records in a file,
LRECL=80,

1.......9 12.....20 25......40 45........60


this is the record layout,

I want to insert ABCDEFGHIJ from 66........75 in all 100 records,

How do you code this?

Please Folks.... give me answer, I cant reply,
I tried to explain through COBOL, but he wants thru SORT only

Try this untested code:
Code:
//SYSIN DD *                       
  OPTION COPY                       
  INREC FIELDS=(1,65,66:C'ABCDEFGHIJ',76:66,14)
/*

Note that this will produce an output data set with LRECL=90 rather than LRECL=80. To keep the same LRECL you would need to use OVERLAY but then what to do with those ten bytes which are OVERLAYed, should be answered first.
