Hi,

I want to sort a sequential file by date and the date will come in different position in different file.

For Ex:

File1:
date<-------------------------------remaining data-------------------> - LRECL 120
File2:
<-----------data------>date<---------------data------> - LRECL 100

Let me have a general step or logic to accomplish this.

I hope we can use SYMBOLS, i am expecting the solution apart from SYMBOLS.

We did the exact same thing with REXX, which reads a dataset with description of other files' structure, and generates the SORT cards accordingly.

note:
you can create all statements for any utility,
which has a command syntax for input.
the logic you must invent yourself, ok...
