Define the field-type, for instance PD, and use EDIT=.

i tried that, but failed with syntax error.

Code:


224,4,PD,TO=ZD,EDIT=(TTTTTT),'~',     
     *                               
228,8,PD,TO=ZD,EDIT=(TTTTTTTTTT),'~',

WER268A  OUTFIL STATEMENT  : SYNTAX ERROR       
WER211B  SYNCSMF  CALLED BY SYNCSORT; RC=0000   
WER449I  SYNCSORT GLOBAL DSM SUBSYSTEM ACTIVE   


unsure if there is any syntax error.

I didn't say you have to attempt conversion and editing at the same time:

Code:
  224,4,PD,EDIT=(TTTTTT),'~',     
  228,8,PD,EDIT=(TTTTTTTTTT),'~',

i tried that too, but gave me syntax error.

Code:

  224,4,PD,EDIT=(TTTTTT),'~',   
       *                         
  228,8,PD,EDIT=(TTTTTTTTTT),'~',

 WER268A  OUTFIL STATEMENT  : SYNTAX ERROR     
 WER211B  SYNCSMF  CALLED BY SYNCSORT; RC=0000 


Am unsure, if can we use the conversion parameters in Trailer section?

I'm actually looking at what you are doing now. Firstly, you can't do what you want for an input field. If you want an edited value for a plain field, you need to do it before OUTFIL.

Why are your records so long? Why use VTOF when you don't have V-type records?
