Hi,

Using Syncsort, I am looking to replace '@@' (X'7C') which appears anywhere in my record with '#' (X'7D')

File information:
Record format . . . : VB
Record length . . . : 2040



Code:

//SYSIN    DD *                                           
 SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
 INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(??,??,CH,EQ,X'7C7C'),OVERLAY=(??:X'7B'))
/*                                                       


Can anyone suggest the value of ??. or anyother SORT which can help me achieve?

if You want to substitute two chars with one , You will have to rebuild the record
overlaying one char will simply mess up things

Look at FINDREP in your documentation. Search the forum.
