hi, can't be done with the translate command as translate only does a 1 to 1 replacement. However you can fix it with the SUBSTR parm as follows:
A = SUBSTR(A,1,2)||SUBSTR(A,4,14); this will delete the 'not' symbol out of the variable. Hope this helps.

HI,
from what I see above in your JCL you are pointing directly to the .data portion of the cluster. You can't do this!! you should specify the CLUSTER name only!! The system will handle the rest including your keys for the index portion of the cluster. Try this & let me know if it works??
