Hi ALL,

I have got a requirement to reformat the record which has time stamp.
so i am using sort utility with out rec option. but i want current time stamp(i.e the time the job has run). currently iam hard coding time stamp.

SYSIN looks as
//SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=(1,9,CH,A)
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,9,10:C'2005-09-01-10.32.00.000000')
instead of hard code timestamp i want current timestamp.

Please if any one has idea let me know.

Thanks in advance.
Jai

Jai,

You can use the following DFSORT OUTREC statement to get what you asked for:

Code:

   OUTREC FIELDS=(1,9,10:DATE4,C'.000000') 


DATE4 produces a date of the form 'yyyy-mm-dd-hh.mm.ss'.
