I have a dataset of FB 436 out of which the amount field starts from 422nd byte and is stored as character format (15bytes). I want to sum the amount based on Policy number (6 bytes char starting from 19th byte) and Effective date (10 bytes char starting from 39th byte).
I tried to make use of below mentioned SORT card but is abending because amount field is not numeric.
Input (putting the amount field alone from 422nd byte - 436th byte)
it is understandable that some initial questions could be poorly formatted
