Hi

Need help on adding a delimiter using DFSORT. I have multiple record types like '001' ,'002', '003' and each record types have multiple positional fields. I will have to add a delimiter between each field. Appreciate any help

Input
-------
001123456789101 11 20150323
002123456789101 11 123456789012
003123456789101 11 123456789012
002123456789101 11 123456789012
003123456789101 11 123456789012

Output
--------
001;123456789101;11;20150323
002;123456789101;11;123456789012
003;123456789101;11;123456789012
002;123456789101;11;123456789012

Just a COPY operation with INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logical expression),BUILD=. Consult the manuals, look for examples here.

Thanks Bill. I'm trying to find an example but could not find one I was expecting. Can you give me an example?

Look for something like this:
Code:

 OPTION COP?Y


or
Code:

 SORT FIELDS=COPY


That will do the COPY operation.

Then something like this, for the IFTHEN and the formatting.

Code:

 INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'001'),
                 BUILD=(1,3,
                        C';',
                        4,12,
                        C';',
                        16,2,
                        C';',
                        19,8
                        80:X)),
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
                 BUILD=(1,3,
                        C';',
                        4,12,
                        C';',
                        16,2,
                        C';',
                        19,12
                        80:X))
.


That's assuming fixed-length 80-byte records.
