All,

I have following input data -

Code:

//SORTIN DD *
2E2B3C
0E2B3C
0E2B3C


The syncsort card is -
Code:

SORT FIELDS=(3,4,CH,A)
SUM FIELDS=(1,2,ZD)


The output is

Code:

352B3C


Instead of output as X'F3F5' i want it to be X'F3C5'. Basically i want to retain the sign nibble as C. How can I achieve it in sort. One way I can think of is using overlay, if last digit is 0, overlay it by X'C0' so and so forth, but is there any other way apart from that.

Have you thought to consult your SyncSort manual to understand this behaviour and discover how to modify it?

@bill - Yes I did check my manual(Syncsort 1.2, programmer's guide). The manual doest have any information about signed nibble or I am not able to locate it.

It doesn't say anything about ZDPRINT? That surprises me. Send your copy back to SyncSort and get a fresh one, something seems to have fallen off the page.

@Bill - Thanks bill. I missed the ZDPRINT part.

Below is the way to use it -
Code:

//$ORTPARM DD *
   NZDPRINT
/*


or
Code:
EXEC=SORT,PARM='NZDPRINT'
