Hi Pradeep,

I doubt OVERLAY work for SYNCSORT.

Its a unique feature of DFSORT along with IFTHEN.

Regards,

Priyesh.

hello sivapradeep,

this is how you can convert
UPPER CASE
to
lower case

using SYNCSORT

===============================
| SORT FIELDS=COPY |
| OUTREC FIELDS=(1:1,10,TRAN=UTOL) |
===============================

In this case i converted a string of 10 characters
say "ABCDEFGHIJ"
to "abcdefghij"

Hope this helps ......
