SPANINC only applies to spanned input files, e.g. RECFM=VBS. From the DFSORT Installation and Customization Guide : SPANINC specifies the action to be taken by DFSORT when one or more incomplete spanned records are detected in a variable spanned input data set. RC0 specifies that DFSORT should issue...

i have tried in on an german mainframe installlation with syncsort version 1.4. Oh, you're using Syncsort, not DFSORT. That's what you didn't tell me. I believe Syncsort applies the ALTSEQ statement changes to the installation default ALTSEQ table, so if your site changed that table, you would get ...

Screenshots are NOT a good idea. Hex with code tags is fine.

So are you saying things are working as expected or not working as expected?

Where are we on this exactly?

Something does NOT add up here. I ran your job with your data as FB input records and the X'5A' characters were NOT changed. In fact, since you are using 12,10,TRAN=ALTSEQ and positions 12-21 in your input records DO NOT have any X'00' characters, nothing is changed. TRAN=ALTSEQ will NOT do what you...

As I said earlier: Well, theoretically it would be possible. You could convert the first record of the input file to VB, determine it's FB LRECL as RDW length-4 and then generate symbols for the positions you need based on that LRECL, and use those symbols in the JOINKEYS step. But it would be quite...

If you can identify the name records and trnx records in some way (e.g. different value in position 1), you can use DFSORT IFTHEN clauses to handle the records differently. For more information on IFTHEN clauses, search for "IFTHEN" under OUTFIL in the "z/OS DFSORT Application Programming Guide": ht...

OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT3,INCLUDE=(...(69,597,BI,NE,734,597,BI)),... The problem is in the second INCLUDE condition for OUT3. The maximum length for a BI field for INCLUDE is 256, but you have 597 which is > 256. See: http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CA50/3.7....

You can use a DFSORT job like the following. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes. //S1 EXEC PGM=SORT //SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=* //SORTIN DD * 1XXXXX22434 2XXXA dsfdaf gfgdfgh 2XXXA dsfdaf gfgdfgh 2XXXA dsfdaf gfgdfgh 2XXXA dsfd...

holmeroad, It depends on exactly what COMP fields you have. The following might help you figure it out: http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CA50/C.3?DT=20100630155256 If that doesn't help, then you need to give more details about the type of COMP fields you want to display...

Gurugars,

My job works fine with DFSORT. The WER messages indicate you're using Syncsort, not DFSORT. I'm a DFSORT developer. DFSORT and Syncsort are competitive products. I'm happy to answer questions on DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, but I don't answer questions on Syncsort.

1,15,TRAN=ALTSEQ with ALTSEQ CODE=(0040) will change any X'00' byte in positions 1-15 to a X'40' byte. I don't see how that has anything to do with the LOCALE or how it would change anything else unless it has a X'00' in it. For single-byte characters, that wouldn't make sense. So I can't really hel...

As per your direction, I tried to create symbol for below date //SYMNAMES DD * CRDATE,S'&LMON./&LDAY./&LYR4' But I didn't get success. I don't know what you did that wasn't successful, but you can certainly create the date that way. For example: //S1 EXEC PGM=SORT //SYMNAMES DD * CRDATE,S'&LMON./&L...

WIDTH(133) is allowed - the maximum is 8192.

I'll add lowering the minimum to my list of possible future enhancements, but it's a long list.
