Hi,

I want to add header field to the file. Header file consist of text followed by DATE.
The header file should be in the format 'AAA HEADER YYYYMMDD'

My file contain records as below.

AAAAA
BBBBB
CCCCC
DDDDD

My output file should contain first byte as space and then the header and the file record should come. Below is the record which i want.


AAA HEADER YYYYMMDD
AAAAA
BBBBB
CCCCC
DDDDD

Also the output file RECFM should be fixed block (FB)

Why don't you also have an indicator on the detail records to show positively that they are detail records?

Saves the embarrasment of a client called "THE HEADER COMPANY" sending your program up the creek.

While you are at it, how about a trailer record? Count of records, maybe some hash totals.

I assume that by "DATE" you mean the current business date. Where are you going to get that from?

Actually the file needs to be axiomed. so that they can download from axiom link. on top of the file they need the text with the current date.

I have a sample code but the RECFM for the output file is FBA. I want the RECFM with FB.

sort card.

Code:

//SORTIN DD   *
AAAAA
BBBBB
CCCCC
DDDDD         
//SORTOUT DD  *                                                 
//SYSIN    DD   *                               
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                           
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT,                     
   HEADER1=(2:C'AAA HEADER ',10:&DATE),   
   BUILD=(1:C' ',2:1,5)
