I have an input file with any one of the values:

588
8558
45633
20

The expected output is :

000,588
008,558
045,633
000,020


The output is of 6 numbers with leading zeros and one comma after the first 3 digits. Please let me know how to achieve this using sort/FILEAID

Escapa provided the working snippet,
why should he waste time retelling what is already explained in the manuals ?

the link is the top at the page

or start from here
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/bkserv/index.html

or search the forums
IIRC one of the DFSORT Developers explained it already
