LENGHT. Fix the typo.

Having now code'd it, it looks a real mess.

Code:
 SORT FIELDS=COPY                                           
 OUTFIL FNAMES=FINAL1,                                       
        BUILD=(C'1',                                             
               6,6,PD,
                TO=ZD,
                LENGTH=10),                           
        REMOVECC,
        HEADER1=('0',2:'xyzfile   ',12:DATE=(4MD-)),
        TRAILER1=('9',COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=10))

Use EDIT= with the mask you want. Examples here, also all explained in your SyncSORT documentation. In future please try to post in the correct part of the forum.
