I am trying to subtract 1 year from current date. I used the below options but I am getting errors,


Code:

SYSIN :                                                 
  INREC FIELDS=(1,10,11:&DATE1P)                         
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                       
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,10,DATEADD=(11,5,DTNSP=(YMD),-1,YEAR))
                                  *                     
WER271A  OUTREC STATEMENT  : NUMERIC FIELD ERROR         




Code:

SYSIN :                                                     
  INREC FIELDS=(1,10,11:DATE1)                               
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                           
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,10,SUBYEARS=(11,8,DT=(YMD),-1,YEAR))     
                      *                                     
WER268A  OUTREC STATEMENT  : SYNTAX ERROR                   


Could you please help me on to resolve this.

Thanks & Regards,

Does the SYNCSORT manual tell you that you can subtract a year from a date? If so, use what the manual recommends. If you cannot find it in the manual, contact the vendor to determine whether or not what you want to do is even possible, and if so how to do it. If your site is licensed for the product, you have access to the documentation and vendor support.

Please try and check if sync sort supports.
Code:
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SORTIN   DD *                                           
20160701                                                 
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SYSIN DD *                                             
    OPTION COPY                                           
    OUTREC BUILD=(1,8,Y4T,SUBYEARS,+1,TOGREG=Y4T(/),2X,   
                  1,8,Y4T,SUBYEARS,+1,TOGREG=Y4T(-))
