Hi,

I have a input file consists of Hexa Decimal(may have negative value) feilds and I want to convert it to display/char format.
both A and B are in Hexa decimal format.
Code:
A = 00033333
      0033333C


Code:
B = 00022222
      0022222D


I tried to do by using the below code.
Code:

OUTREC FIELDS=(64,8,PD,TO=ZD,X,
               72,8,PD,TO=ZD,X)

Below is the ourput i got

Code:
A = 000003333333333
B = 00000222222222K


I am geeting K as a sign bit but i want it to be displayed as -2222222222 and also I dont want to display the trailing zeros.

Code'd and title clarified

Look up EDIT in the manual.

What "trailing zeros"? You mean "leading zeros"? EDIT can do it all, and more.

Thanks Bill Woodger. It worked.

But now I have another question.

I want to merge 2 files using the same sort step.

File1 is a Header file
File2 is a record file

There is no need of formatting the header file,

We have no way of knowing.

Please start a new topic with the request, showing representative input data for both files and expected output, RECFM and LRECL of all files. Use the Code tags, please, to preserve spacing of data.
