Hi,

I tried to write a SORT to find and replace the below accent characters to normal characters which will be in Name field in my input file .

áÁâÂÄÄáÁãÃåÅ Replace with A
éÉêÊëËèÈ Replace with E
íÍîÎïÏìÌ Replace with I
óÓôÔÖÖòÒõÕ Replace with O
úÚûÛÜÜùÙ Replace with U
ýÝ Replace with Y
çÇ Replace with C
ñÑ Replace with N

& - special character will be converted to the word AND

Code:

//FINDREP JOB(A,B,C),'SRT FRGN',CLASS=S,MSGCLASS=X,REGION=0M,NOTIFY=&SYSUID
//SORT010    EXEC PGM=SORT
//SORTWK01   DD UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,10),RLSE)
//SORTIN     DD DSN=INP.FILE, DISP=SHR
//SOROUT     DD DSN=OUT.FILE,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
      OPTION COPY
      INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,FINDREP=(STARTPOS=44,ENDPOS=100,
      IN=(C'á',C'Á',C'â',C'Â',C'Ä',C'á',C'Á',C'ã',C'Ã'),OUT=C'A'))


/*

You want to continue a statement? Just break at a comma, and start on the next line. Lots of examples showing that. Or do you mean something else?

Use multiple IFTHEN=( like this..

I would recommend to use Hex of all these value rather than a character.

Code:

OPTION COPY                                                     
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,FINDREP=(STARTPOS=1,ENDPOS=80,         
IN=(C'á',C'Á',C'â',C'Â',C'Ä',C'á',C'Á',C'ã',C'Ã'),OUT=C'A')),   
IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,FINDREP=(STARTPOS=1,ENDPOS=80,               
IN=(C'é',C'É',C'ê',C'ë',C'è',C'È'),OUT=C'E'))                   


Hope this helps.

Either use INOUT and specify all the pairs. Can use symbols/SYMNAMEs to document and simplify code and reduce maintenance.

Or, probably better, use ALTSEQ.
