I have a record that is 740 bytes long, the first 12 bytes always contains data, but the remaining 728 bytes may or may not contain data.
I'm trying to write an INCLUDE statement to say that "give me all the records that have 728 blank bytes starting from position 13, How do have enter 728 spaces in the EQ, C' ') comparison field ?

INCLUDE COND=(13,728,CH,EQ,C'? ')

Thanx in advance
Steve

For an n-byte CH field, you can use C' ' (one blank) for n spaces in INCLUDE. DFSORT pad the constant out with blanks to the length of the field. However, the maximum length for a CH field used with INCLUDE is 256 bytes, so you have to use three CH fields to do what you want like this:

Code:

  INCLUDE FORMAT=CH,
    COND=(13,256,EQ,C' ',AND,
          269,256,EQ,C' ',AND,
          525,216,EQ,C' ')
