Hi,

I have a file which has a header record and remaining dta record. I want to sort the data based on some currency code it is easy to do.
my queastion here is how can I write the the header record and the sorted data records to my output file?
Example:
Input file:
DATE | LOCATION | CURRENCY | RATE |
20121108 | NY | AUD | 00000045654 |
20121108 | NY | AED | 00000023450 |
20121108 | NY | ART | 00000012345 |

I want my sort file to be

DATE | LOCATION | CURRENCY | RATE |
20121108 | NY | AED | 00000023450 |
20121108 | NY | ART | 00000012345 |
20121108 | NY | AUD | 00000045654 |

Do I need to split the file for header and data first, sort the data file and finally merge the header and data file?

Thanks

Please look at the DATASORT operator of ICETOOL.
