Hi,

I have a job which runs every week. I need to create a file which has records as below.
1,2,3,4,5,6,7

When the job runs next week, it should create file like this
8,9,10,11,12,13,14

in the fifth run, it should be like this
29,30,31,1,2,3,4

Basically these are days in a month.

Any trick for this in DFSORT?

Hello,

See if this link helps; you'll need to tweak the code a little bit, but the link still gives enough info to go about.

Aside, DFSORT has indeed come a long way in terms of enhancements since the original post in the link. icon_smile.gif

Indeed, a long way.

Consult the documentation of the date functions. There's not much of a trick to it.
