Hi,

I am using SYNCSORT to extract data from DB2.

In the extract there is a column of TIME data type . The format of the TIME filed is hh.mm.ss by default. the hours , minutes and seconds are delimited by period.

The following information is available in the sysout after running the SYNCSORT about the specific field.

DB2 data type : TIME
SYNCSORT data type : CH

My requirement is to print the field in the format hh:mm:ss . the hours , minutes and seconds delimited by a colon.

I have read the syncsort prog guide and DFSORT programming guide but i couldn't understand how exactly to achieve this.

I tried using the EDIT option but keep getting syntax errors.

Please help in writing the OUTREC statement where this reformatting will be done using SYNCSORT.

I have other alternatives like to use Overlay after creating extract or DB2 functions to get hours , minutes and seconds separately and concatenate but I want to learn to do it in SYNCSORT using OUTREC while extracting.

Can you show your code, please? In the Code tags.

Why are you so desperate to use OUTREC? Unless you are relying on the result of a SORT or MERGE or SUM, INREC will be fine and a more sensible place to put it.

Have you looked at the data you extracted? Is it delimited already?

As well as your code, show sample input, expected result, received result.

Bring the time already with colons by selecting:
Code:
CHAR(MY_TIME,JIS) AS MY_NEW_TIME


I tried all the options (ISO,USA,EUR,JIS,LOCAL)
JIS worked for me.

After some research:
JIS stands for "Japanese industrial standard" and time is shown as hh:mm:ss
