Hi,

I have 2 date feilds in input file.
Let say the date feilds starts in below positions

Length start pos end pos
DATE1 10 308 317
DATE2 10 318 327

I have date1 value 2014-09-23. Now i want to add 9months to date1 and place it in date2 feild.

I was able to calculate 1 year to date1 but failed to add 9 months.

The below is sort card for adding one year.
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,317,318,4,ZD,ADD,+1,EDIT=(TTTT),322,29)
the file's total length is 350 bytes, our date feilds exists from 308 to 327 bytes.

If any one has idea how to do calculate the 9 months advanced date from given input value by using sort card, please let me know.
Appriciate your help.

Thanks.

Can you post the sysout from a SORT step (doesn't matter which) so we can see what version you are at?

OK, you have SyncSort, whose questions belong in the JCL forum.

You are fairly current with SyncSort. Consult your documentation. You should find DATEADD which is of use to you if you can define "nine months" as a number of days.

If not, ask the analyst what is supposed to happen when you add nine months to 31 of May.

You need to know, exactly, what "nine months" means. These are computers, they know nothing themselves.
