I have a requirement where i need to replace few characters at two different positions. But when try using below SORT Card, it replaces only the first OVERLAY statement(Position 72) and second OVERLAY statement(Position 82) was not executed. Will someone able to explain whether i need to change the SORT Card Parameters or we can do it in this method.

Spot on Nic.
Once an IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logical-expression) is true for the current record, IFTHEN processing stops unless , when you want to make another test for an unrelated condition on the same record, then you have to specify HIT=NEXT, which will cause processing to continue until another IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logical-expression) is satisfied, or until there are no more IFTHEN tests.
