I have a file in the PIPE delimiter format.

1|2|20150316
1|20|20150316

My output should lokk like

1|002|20150316
1|020|20150316

Second field is three byte field. if its not three bytes i have to insert zeroes infront of each value.

PLease let me know how can we achiev this by using sort command

Why do you need to do that? (can't the reader realise that the presence/absence of leading zeros does not affect the value of anything)

Why can't the source of the data make that field fixed-length for you?

If you are stuck doing it, it is a simple PARSE into three parts, and using an EDIT= for the second PARSEd field as you use BUILD to remake the line.
