I have searched this topic on this forum but didn't find anywhere.
Could anyone help me....
I have to copy all the records from a VB file(LRECL=779) to a FB file(LRECL=179).
I need to copy only first 179 positions from input file.

Tell me meaning of VTOF.... And function of BUILD... if you know ...
Given that I've been developing DFSORT and ICETOOL for over 25 years, you could say that "I know".
VTOF converts VB input records to FB output records.
BUILD indicates the fields to be included in the output record.
If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
