I have a file of LRECL 80. The data present is of variable length.

AAAAAAA
BBBBBBB
CCC
AAAAAAA
BBBBBBB
CCCC
AAAAAAA
BBBBBBB
CCCCCC

I need the data to be in this format:

AAAAAAA
BBBBBBB
CCCAAAA
AAABBBB
BBBCCCC
AAAAAAA
BBBBBBB
CCCCCC

Is it possible to do this using JCL and utilities like SYNCSORT/ FileAid etc?

Is your data representative of the data that can exist? For instance:

Code:
CCCC
CC
BBBBBBB


Is that possible?

How many records do you have?
