Hello,
but in my case i can't do it either because there are numerous special characters in my project and i can't use INSPECT for every special character and for every time.
Why not?

As asked - what is Not working?

I will have to process records in millions Suggest you test with 10s or 100s, NOT millions of records . . . I have to compare 1-7 field from first file to 20-27 of File but when I'm giving in Joinkeys should that be (20,7) or (1,7)?. These need to become consistent. 20-27 and 20 for 7 are not the s...

Keep in mind that COBOL will allocate the table to the maximum size. The table does NOT change size.

To change the size you would recompile.

Suggest you define the code for the max and set the specific value you want to use ar run-time.

What was the hex input that generated the incorrect result?

I suspect it will help if you post the actual jcl and sort control used (copy/paste Not retype) along with the generated output including all messages with message id.

as I have to resolve this issue by today itself
If time is so constrained, you might consider COBOL . . . The coding would not be the same, but is rather straightforward.

I suspect it is already rather late in the day there.

Do take a few minutes and practice with the Code Tag! It is not available on the Quick Reply editor. If you are in Quick Reply, click preview and all of the editing features become visable. The line of code is the "first-time" thru and sets up an area of all zeros. Later, as bits are used, the ones ...

Suggest you practice with the Code tag - it can be your friend . . .

I took a shot at "Coding" your info, but it works better if you do this and adjust for alignment.

Once we are clear about what you want, Syncsort can get the result needed.

Hopefully, you have noticed that your system is using Syncsort rather than DFSORT.

The tran=bit is not yet available in Syncsort as far as i know.

You need to determine how to make the IFTHEN / OVERLAY work.

Copy the above and make the changes . . .

Why have you not posted the error(s)?

Keep in mind that most of the work getting help is yours. We can only help with what you show us.

You're not wasting my time - i just don't have as much as i'd prefer :)

The doc has a rather clear description of WHEN=INIT (first time). The BUILD generates 8 character zeros to be replaced with ones dependking on the character value (refer to the example i posted earlier).

If you use the code you have and the explanation from the manual (and my brief explanation), you will be able to get the understanding.

It wiould be better to become comfortable with the sort before just copying things from the internet that you do not understand.

fwiw.
