I need to copy the variable with comp-3 to the output file using DFSORT outrec

Input file :
05 Tansaction-amount PIC S9(11)V99 COMP-3.

In the below logic, I am copying the record with 15 characters GT spaces to 203 location of output file
Also I need to include the transaction amount to the below BUILD

IFTHEN=(WHEN=(203,15,CH,GT,C' '),
BUILD=(1:C'000',4:203,15))

Please suggest.

TIA...

You are in the DFSORT forum, so please be a bit more creative with your topic title.

Why do you have to use OUTRECT?

You'll find your BUILD is easier to understand without the column numbers.

A packed-decimal field is just a field, and there is no problem just coding in a similar way:

Code:
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(203,15,CH,GT,C' '),
         BUILD=(C'000',203,15,start,length))


Where start is the start of your field, and length is the length of it.
