We have a input file having numerous input fields of different datatypes. We have the requirement to convert all numeric fields among them into edited numeric so that the destination application would be able to read the data. To achieve this objective we are using a SORT card like below -
.....500 more fields to be converted
but due to the huge number of fields converted the SORT step abends with the following error
ICS085A 0 SECOND COMMUNICATION AREA SPACE EXCEEDED - ADD ATLEASE 0K BYTES TO REGION
I've tried using OPTION MAINSIZE=MAX but that doesn't help either.
