It is usual practice to insert the sequence number at the start of VB files.

adding a field (whatever kind it might be ) at the end of a variable record will make it a FIXED length record of the maximum length,
nullifying the objective of having a VARIABLE length record

Not sure if it will work as I'm not on a mainfrane at this contract

Instead of
Code:

  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                   
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,4,5:SEQNUM,5,ZD,5,8205)


try
Code:

  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                   
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,4,5:SEQNUM,5,ZD,10:5)


Fairly sure that by just giving the start position of 5 and no length it will include the data until EOR

Hi Expat

Thanks for your post, it is working fine, but sequence number is coming till 4 th position and 5 th digit is coming as junk. I am expecting 5 digits of sequence number with out any junk value

I have got below output.
Code:
----+----1---
0001!..L
0002!. L
0003!.OL
0004!..L

Thanks
Srini.

I got the desired results with the sort card that expat provided. Can you post the complete SYSOUT from your job?
