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.
