Following is Input record

Code:
AA0BBZCC0DD


Requirement:
If the 3rd position is Zero, insert 2 zeroes more at 4 and 5th position
If the 3rd position is not Zero, insert 2 spaces at 4 and 5th position
If the 6th position is Zero, insert 2 zeroes more at 7 and 8th position
If the 6th position is not Zero, insert 2 spaces at 7 and 8th position

Thus the above record value in output should be
Code:
AA000BBZ  CC0DD


I have written the following to test, but its not working. I am getting following output

Code:
AA000BBZCC0DD


Code i have written
Code:

SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
  OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'0'),                 
                 BUILD=(1:1,3,4:C'00',6:4,15)),         
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(3,1,CH,NE,C'0'),                 
                 BUILD=(1:1,3,4:C'  ',6:4,15)),         
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(6,1,CH,NE,C'0'),                 
                 BUILD=(1:1,6,7:C'  ',10:7,11))         



I beleive after first IFTHEN, the code came out. Please let me know how can i give these conditions

You need to consult the manual.

There you will discover that once one IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logical-expression is satisfied, no more more are tested for that record. You will also discover there is a way to modify this behaviour, HIT=NEXT.

Code:
SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
  OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,                 
                 BUILD=(1,3,C'  ':4,15)),         
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'0'),                 
                 OVERLAY=(4:C'00'),HIT=NEXT),         
         IFTHEN=(WHEN=(6,1,CH,NE,C'0'),                 
                 BUILD=(1,6,C'  ',7,11))     


I've simplified your code slightly. This should work. Understand why before using it for real.
