I have inserted the code tags for you. Please learn quickly to use them yourself because it makes things much easier to read.

You need to convert the FB file to a VB file - there are just sooooo many examples on the forum, so have a play with the search facility on the forum.

Also, you will need to post the JCL and output from the failing run so we know exactly what is happening.

Just use SORT. Two steps. First create a symbol/SYMNAME from the date file. Tiny step, you won't have a chance to notice it running.

Second step, use symbol in HEADER1, use TRALIER1 for the "TRL".

Search the forum for examples of the date-to-symbol.
