Hi,

I have an input file (LRECL=80,RECFM=FB) with data as shown below:
Code:

----+----1----+----2----+----3
A1 NAME OF LENGTH 80         
A2 ADDR OF LENGTH 80         
A8 OTHR OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         
A1 DATA OF LENGTH 80         
A2 DATA OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         
A1 NAME OF LENGTH 80         
A2 ADDR OF LENGTH 80         
A7 MISC OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         
A1 NAME OF LENGTH 80         
A2 ADDR OF LENGTH 80         
A8 OTHR OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         


The above data has groups of records (each group of records start with A1 and ends with ZZ at 1st column). There are total 4 groups. My requirement is to insert A9 record after each A8 record if a group has got A8 record type. However, all the records should remain in the same order as they do appear in I/P file.

The expected output is like this:
Code:

----+----1----+----2----+----3
A1 NAME OF LENGTH 80         
A2 ADDR OF LENGTH 80         
A8 OTHR OF LENGTH 80         
A9 EXTR OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         
A1 DATA OF LENGTH 80         
A2 DATA OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         
A1 NAME OF LENGTH 80         
A2 ADDR OF LENGTH 80         
A7 MISC OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         
A1 NAME OF LENGTH 80         
A2 ADDR OF LENGTH 80         
A8 OTHR OF LENGTH 80         
A9 EXTR OF LENGTH 80         
ZZ ENDR OF LENGTH 80         


Is this possible with DFSORT v10 for z/OS? Please help.

Thanks.

Try an IFTHEN on OUTFIL and use the / (slash operator) when you get an A8. There are examples. Search for "slash operator".
