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)
Code:

          83.33
          83.33
          -8.09
       26995.00
          14.44
         -13.12
         153.07
         -17.23
         200.98
Output (Need to have the whole file with summed amount from 422nd byte)

For example if the first 2 records have same policy number and effective date, we should get it as


Code:
         166.66
          -8.09
       26995.00
          14.44
         -13.12
         153.07
         -17.23
         200.98



Code:
  SORT FIELDS=(19,6,CH,A,39,10,CH,A)
  SUM FIELDS=(422,15,CH)           



Thanks
Vinu
