To get signs you have to use EDIT mask

and read the sort manual on this fine site.

I started answering questions on this site after this question was posed. For the record, you can use DFSORT's SFF format in INREC, OUTREC or OUTFIL to convert this type of value (and many others) to various editted or numeric forms. For example:

Code:

  INREC FIELDS=(1,10,11:11,13,SFF,TO=PD,LENGTH=6,...)


For complete details on DFSORT's new SFF format, and all of the other new DFSORT and ICETOOL functions available with DFSORT's Dec, 2004 PTF, see:
