Hi All,

I have a scenario like below

Code:
Input 

1234ABCDEFGHI
5678JKLMNOPQR

Output

1234DABCDEFGHI
1234HABCDEFGHI
5678DJKLMNOPQR
5678HJKLMNOPQR



I want to Duplicate each record in the file so in output file there will be 2 records for each .. first willbe having a D at 5th position and second will be having a H in 5th position .. like above

I am planing to do it with SYNCSORT . .and was wondering if any one can give an idea or have done this kind of sort earlier . I tried searchign it in Docs or google but couldnt find much to implement

Many thanks in advance !!

Have a look at BUILD on OUTFIL which supports the Slash Operator (/) which allows you to write multiple lines from one input record.

Thanks a bunch for the idea Bill ..

I was able to do it

Code:
SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
OUTFIL OUTREC=(1:1,4,C'D',6:5,10,16:15,4,C'D',21:19,10,/,
 1:1,4,C'H',6:5,10,16:15,4,C'H',21:19,10)


Code'd

Code:
SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
OUTFIL BUILD=(1,4,C'D',X,5,10,15,4,C'D',X.19,10,
              /,
              1,4,C'H',X,5,10,15,4,C'H',X.19,10)


You can make things clearer by using BUILD instead of the OUTREC (so it can't be confused with OUTREC) and not using all the columns. Also by indentation.

I'd also use symbols/SYMNAMES to avoid the repeated code, but I like doing it the easy (to understand and maintain) way.
