I am having the below file:

----+----1----+----2----+----3----+
°É|
00000000000000000000008740000030000
000000000000000000000001F00000F0000

I want to update the current system date from 24-27 in comp-3 form.

The ouput should be in the below way.
°É|
00000000000000000000009740000030000
000000000000000000000001F00000F0000

Please use the Code tags to preserve spacing.

In INREC, use IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logical expression to identify the header and make the change. Have no clue where you're going to source your date from, a file I hope, but likely you'll just bang in the system date.

I have tried with the below code:
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,2,HEX,EQ,X'0000'),
FINDREP=(IN=X'0080714F',OUT=X'0%%OD.%%F')

X'0%%OD.%% = it will capture the system date.

But I am getting below syntax error:

INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(22,4,BI,EQ,X'0080714F'),
OVERLAY=(22:4,X'0%%OD.%%F'))
*

I have no idea what that replacement value is, but since %. O and . are not hexadecimal characters, you can't suggest to SyncSort that they are.
