Hi,

I need to remove spaces between variables. There is a possibility that single variable can have spaces in between, it should be removed.

Example:
I have a file which has records like below

123123 |ba12 12|jhajf afdjhsdakj asfdkjhkj |kashfdjhas |

My output should be something like this.

123123|ba12 12|jhajf afdjhsdakj asfdkjhkj|kashfdjhas|.


I have a delimiter as pipe symbol. The record length I am using is 1999, but still I will not get values upto 1999.

Could someone help me asap.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Selva N

What you want to do cannot be done by JCL. JCL does not manipulate data, it simply tells the OS that you want to run a program and the resources needed to do so. It is, also, not a VSAM question. Given those two points, why post in the JCL & VSAM part of the forum.
Topic moved to DFsort part of the forum because it can do what you want. If you do not have DFSort but have SyncSort then let us know and it will be moved to the taht part of the forum.

Look in the manual for something like "Spaces, Removing" in the index and SQZ.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for your guidance.

I tried with SQZ and it is not working. Can you please help me with the Manual you are referring.

Thanks.

In this forum, people usually present their own solution they tried, including:
1) source code
2) input data
3) output data
4) clear explanation of initial requirements, what is wrong, and why?

And next step, they ask for help from the forum.

If there is none of above, you can rarely expect that only the most polite and very kind person would give you a ready-to-use solution.
Mostly the response will be: RTFM!
