It would have helped if you'd explained what you want in more detail with more examples. See if a DFSORT job like the following does what you want:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
789
0001
333
0234
1234
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(1,4,UFF,EDIT=(TTTT))
/*


SORTOUT would have:

Code:

0789   
0001   
0333   
0234   
1234


If that's not what you want, then do a better job of explaining what you do want with a better example of input and expected output.

Removed many posts resulting from a misguided and pointless attempt to "help".

Hi,

I wanted additional information about the edit masks passed in the above sort card like UFF,EDIT=(TTTT).

It would be nice if you can point me to some meterial.
I tried googling in few but could not get exact info.

Please provide me info if possible .

UFF is a format. EDIT=(TTTT) is a user-defined edit mask.

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:
