Hi,

I have 2 variable block file -
File1 - length 300 bytes (actual length 304)
File2 - length 200 bytes (actual length 204)

File1 contains data and my task is to copy data from File1 to File2 and I need to copy only the first 174 bytes from each record.

Currently I am using SSGENER utility for copying the data but this copies 200 bytes from File1 to File2.

I am looking for something where I can specify that only the first 174 bytes need to be copied.

Thanks

Code:
  OPTION COPY
  INREC BUILD=(1,4,5,174)


Toss that into your SORT product, check. Amend if you have not accurately described the 174 thing.[/code]
