Hi,

I have one input of length having 350, i need to add extra 16 bytes as spaces. Coudl you please help me how to do this in sort.
Because input file is concatenated with 3 files, others 2 files are having length 366. So i have to increase the length of 3rd file to 366.

You can use these DFSORT statements to add 16 spaces to the end of FB/350 records.

Code:

   OPTION COPY
   INREC OVERLAY=(351:16X)


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:
