Why do you believe you cannot change some of the values?

Every possible bit pattern (from x'00' thru x'FF') can be handled by ALTSEQ.

If you cannot, then there is some understanding that is missing.

Hope above works... share your thoughts...
There is no need for anyone's thoughts.

For such a simple exercise, you should have tried your alternatives and then posted if there were any surprises/problems . . .

Hi dhiraj,

As far as I know, this type of promotion is not allowed in this forum.

I'm not an admin, but I do try to limit this kind of spam posting.

For the most part, I simply delete the entire post, but there have been some that people have replied to, so I just delete the spam link.

It you want to get help, you have to do a better job of posting your problem . . .

We need to see the problem run as well as the diagnostics generated by the attempt.

You should not start a topic without a subject. When you post yours, we will update your subject.

Typically, a way to get help more quickly is to show your code/jcl (as you have done) using the Code tag, some sample input data, and the exact output you want from that sample input.

Your sort control statements have been Code'd for readability and to retain alignment.

There are exactly 256 hex values that will fit into one character.

ALTSEQ has no restrictions that I am aware of, so every character can be replaced. For example the " is an x'7F' which I do not see in your list of codes?

Why did you repeat your original request? It does nothing to clarify why you still need help.

The ALTSEQ should change those characters if you have all of the values in the character conversion list.

As mentioned, you need to post some data. . . .
"By using this I am able to replace some of the special character.
so please provide some help in this"

Suggest you post some of the input records your process will handle and then show the expected output.

If the data is to be kept secret, substitute some test values for these fields.
