Hi All,

Requirement -
Input file record - (FB file)
Code:
NAMEA ADDRESSA1 ADDRESSA2
NAMEB ADDRESSB1 ADDRESSB2


Expected output
Code:
<FIELD1>NAMEA<FIELD2>ADDRESSA1<FIELD3>ADDRESSA2
<FIELD1>NAMEB<FIELD2>ADDRESSB1<FIELD3>ADDRESSB2


And there could be thousands of input record, So please someone help to figure out a SORT to deal with this?

Thanks and Regards,
Sree

From your example, the data is always in fixed positions. Simple to reformat with BUILD.

However, probably things are not so clear as that. Is the data always in fixed positions? Are trailing spaces OK on fields in the output?

If input file positions are not fixed but varying, then additionally use
Code:
INREC PARSE=...,BUILD=...


For details - RTFM please
