Hello,

Does anyone have a solution to propose: How to move the first field of each record to the end of the record in a CSV file ?

My input file contains multiple fields, each separated from the previous one by a semicolon

The problem seemed trivial to me, but I don't see a simple solution.
The problem also comes from the fact that we don't know the number of fields.
Of course, it is not impossible that SPACE characters are present in one or more fields.

I starded with :

Code:

OUTFIL VTOF,                                                   
      PARSE=(%01=((ABSPOS=1,ENDBEFR=C'";',FIXLEN=2),   
                   %02=( ? )),
      BUILD=(%02,C';',%01)


But I don't know how to reference the end of the record.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards

First of all, while working with RECFM=VB, in SORT you need to take into account RDW field, in every record.

Code:
"1";22222;33333;44444;55555;66666                     
"2";AAAAA;BBBBB;CCCCC;DDDDD;EEEEE;FFFFF;GGGGG         
"3";999;888;777;666;555;444                           


Code:
 SORT FIELDS=COPY                                           
 OUTREC PARSE=(%01=(ABSPOS=5,ENDBEFR=C'";',FIXLEN=2),       
               %02=(FIXLEN=80)),                             
        BUILD=(1,4,%02,JFY=(SHIFT=RIGHT),C';',%01,C'"')     
 OUTFIL VTOF,                                               
        PARSE=(%03=(ABSPOS=5,STARTAFT=C' ',FIXLEN=100)),     
        BUILD=(%03,JFY=(SHIFT=LEFT))


Code:
22222;33333;44444;55555;66666;"1"                                 
AAAAA;BBBBB;CCCCC;DDDDD;EEEEE;FFFFF;GGGGG;"2"                     
999;888;777;666;555;444;"3"

No need for a second parse operation.

Code:
OPTION COPY                                                     
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,                                         
  PARSE=(%01=(ABSPOS=5,ENDBEFR=C'";',FIXLEN=2),                 
         %02=(FIXLEN=80)),                                       
  BUILD=(1,4,%02,JFY=(SHIFT=RIGHT,TRAIL=C';'),%01,C'"')),       
  IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,BUILD=(1,4,5,83,JFY=(SHIFT=LEFT,LENGTH=80)))
END

  IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,BUILD=(1,4,5,83,JFY=(SHIFT=LEFT,LENGTH=80)))
END


Anyway, OUTFIL VTOF is required...

Hello,

Thank you very much for your help, it perfectly solved my problem.

The issue with the RDW was due to a transcription error because I did not use the copy/paste function.

However, I am delighted to see that this error did not go unnoticed, as it is also a mistake of carelessness that I easily make.

Thank you again.
best regards
