Hi Team,

My requirement is to add current date in header using DFSORT

Please find my example below for better understanding

Example:

Header to be added : "world is not enough" DATE(current date) "success"

I have written sort card in the following manner to achieve that

SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTFIL REMOVECC,
HEADER1=(1:'world is not enough', DATE1, 28:'success')

Strangely i am getting Syntax error


Please help me

You have syntax errors because

1. You have spaces between keywords
2. Date1 is NOT valid on Trailer1. You need to use DATENS keyword

Use the following control cards

Code:

//SYSIN    DD *                                                 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                               
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,                                               
  HEADER1=(1:'WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH ',DATENS=(4MD),28:' SUCCESS') 
//*
