Hi,

I need to copy data from some colums say col 3 to 15 and then col 20-35 then col 50-60 from a flat file to another flat file. I also have a copy book for the file.
And i have around 3000 of total records.
Can some please tell me how will proceed for these.

What does having a copy book matter? If you are not writing a program to do this, the copy book won't be needed and if you are writing a program to do this then why are you posting on this forum?

Are you wanting to preserve the spacing or can columns 3 to 15 from the input file become columns 1 to 13 of the output file?

If you want to preserve spacing, what do you want in the columns not being copied -- spaces? zeroes? some specific hexadecimal value?

What have you tried already? This can be done using SORT or IEBGENER; have you read the manual about them?
