hi,

Can you help me in syntax to insert a dummy record in PS file using DFSORT. I need a dummy record in PS file with low-values for the entire record length Of the file. If possible i don’t want to specify the rec length in the sort card.

regds,
useit

create your dummy record as HEADER or TRAILER depending upon where do you want it.

useit,

You'll have to make a better description of what you want. F or V records? Why don't you want to know the length? Where would you want to insert the record? Why do you want to do this?

mistah kurtz,

Do you mean HEADER1/TRAILER1? How would you fill those with binary zeros?

Hi Bill.

Yes..I meant HEADER1/TRAILER1. I thought we can use the X'00', but yes, with record length. Something like:
Code:
OUTFIL REMOVECC,HEADER1=(80X'00')
