hi team,

I have a file with 300,000 records , my requirement is to append three characters in front of every record.

for ex :

the records are in the shape of policies :

CONVTS8387TSD
CONVTS3474LIA
AAVT746464ESA

I want to append 'NLI' in front of every policy my resulting dataset should look like :

NLICONVTS8387TSD
NLICONVTS3474LIA
NLIAAVT746464ESA

Hi,
This would do think.
Code:
//S1         EXEC  PGM=SORT         
//SYSOUT     DD  SYSOUT=*       
//SORTIN     DD DSN=TEST.INFILE
//SORTOUT    DD DSN=TEST.OUTFILE
//SYSIN      DD    *             
   SORT      FIELDS=COPY
   OUTREC    FIELDS=(C'NLI',1,500)
/*             


Regards,
