Hi All,

In one of my requirements I have to generate a report through DFSORT.
I need the below 2 dates in the header of report in the mentioned formats:

Date 1 --> DD MMM YY --> eg: 31 MAY 12
Date 2 --> DD MMM YY HH.MM.SS --> eg: 02 JUN 12 02.56.33

Date 1 is the processing date which is obtained from an input file format DD/MM/YY. This date has to be converted into the DD MMM YY format in the report.

Date 2 is the current system time stamp which has to be populated in the report in the format DD MMM YY HH.MM.SS

Could any one please help in getting the above needed date formats through DFSORT.

Thanks in advance.
Ram.

ram_vizag,

use the following DFSORT JCL which will give you the desired results
Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                                       
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//SORTIN   DD *                                                 
----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----
PROCESS DATE :31/05/12.                                         
RECORD - 1                                                     
RECORD - 2                                                     
RECORD - 3                                                     
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//SYSIN    DD *                                                 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                             
  INREC IFOUTLEN=80,                                           
  IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:DATE1,X,85,2,X,18,2,2X)),       
  IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,FINDREP=(STARTPOS=90,                       
  INOUT=(C'01',C'JAN',C'02',C'FEB',C'03',C'MAR',C'04',C'APR',   
         C'05',C'MAY',C'06',C'JUN',C'07',C'JUL',C'08',C'AUG',   
         C'09',C'SEP',C'10',C'OCT',C'11',C'NOV',C'12',C'DEC'))),
  IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,12,CH,EQ,C'PROCESS DATE'),                   
  BUILD=(1,16,X,94,3,X,21,2,X,                                 
         C'RUN DATE : ',87,2,X,90,3,X,83,2,X,TIME))             
//*


The output from this is
Code:

PROCESS DATE :31 MAY 12 RUN DATE : 28 JUN 12 09:31:04   
RECORD - 1                                               
RECORD - 2                                               
RECORD - 3
