Hi,

you can try this

Code:
//STEP0001 EXEC PGM=SORT                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//SORTIN   DD *                                           
BOTH,123456789,1234567Q,123456,0,DB,Q1                   
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//SYSIN    DD *                                           
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                       
* CHANGE ',' TO ' '                                       
 ALTSEQ CODE=(6B40)                                       
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80,TRAN=ALTSEQ)                         
/*

I'd use these DFSORT control statements (don't have to worry about field length):

Code:

  OPTION COPY                         
  INREC FINDREP=(IN=C',',OUT=C' ')     


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:
