I am copying below input file data to output file by having filter '|' in between and sorting on first 4 bytes.
Problem is last field has alpha numeric date which has '.' in it . I am unable to copy the characters after period (i,e) '.' .
With your SORT CARD , you should get below output.
So you are not telling us everything accurate, please double check what you are doing.
Sorry , Yes you are correct about the output . I do have one more BI field in between where the length is not correctly specified in my sort(which i have modified now) . Apologize for the wrong output posted
