Hi,

Could you please help me in writing the below output using PARSE in SORT or ICETOOL.

Explanation:
The input is a comma delimited and want the output to be written as replacing comma with * as shown below. Also the field STATUS and its value in all the records and header should be written as $.

Code:

Input:

POLNO,AGENTNO,STATUS,FREQ,GENDER
00001,001,SP,MONTHLY,MALE
002,02,AP,YEARLY,FEMALE
03,003,AP,HALF,MALE
0004,04,SP,QUARTELY,MALE
00005,005,AP,MONTHLY,FEMALE


Output:

POLNO*AGENTNO*$*FREQ*GENDER
00001*001*$*MONTHLY*MALE
002*02*$*YEARLY*FEMALE
03*003*$*HALF*MALE
0004*04*$*QUARTELY*MALE
00005*005*$*MONTHLY*FEMALE

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

Code:

  OPTION COPY                                             
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,FINDREP=(IN=C',',OUT=C'*')),     
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,                                     
      PARSE=(%01=(ENDAT=C'*',FIXLEN=10),                   
             %02=(ENDAT=C'*',FIXLEN=10),                   
             %=(ENDBEFR=C'*'),                             
             %03=(FIXLEN=20)),                             
      BUILD=(%01,%02,C'$*',%03)),                         
   IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(1:1,42,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT)))
