I have a file where first 10 bites are defined as 9(10). But there are chances that, I might get junk values in the field. Before feeding this file to my COBOL program, I would like to remove such records and feed it. How can I remove the junk values from the file? Is it possible in SORT?

Thanks,

Locate the section on "Numeric Tests" in the manual.

This can be used in INCLUDE/OMIT COND=, INCLUDE/OMIT= and IFTHEN=.

Hello,

Might they be something other than "junk"? Suggest you determine how the data originated and fix/change that process rather than some kludge to pass the data to "fix" it.

Thanks Bill, got it.

Hi Dick, Yeah that's true. It's something our upstream system needs to make the change. I was checking the possibilities...
