Hi,
I have a input file(record format is FB and record lenght is 756).

I have a field in input file which is declared as S9(11) COMP-3 (it stores 11 bytes),

How do I extract this field alone from the input file?

Thanks.

Hi,

If the i dont think the field S9(11) COMP-3 will occupy 11 bytes of memory it will occupy n/2 + 1 which is 6 bytes for s9(11) comp-3.
Now lets assume that the field starts from 11th byte then it will ocupy 6 bytes till 16

In the sort step
Code:
//stepsort exec pgm=icetool
//dfsmsg dd sysout=*
//toolmsg dd sysout=*
//infile dd dsn=file dsn
//outfile dd dsn=file dsn
//toolin dd *
copy from(infile) to(outfile) using(cnt1)
/*
//cnt1cntl dd *
  outrec fields=(11,6,to=zd,length=11)
/*
//
this will do i hope
Regards,

If you want to extract just the 6-byte PD field as is, you can use this DFSORT job:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   OUTREC FIELDS=(11,6)
