congratulations,
apparently William was able to point you in the
right direction
so that you could learn, yourself, how to accomplish the task!

That makes responding to questions enjoyable.
Not only have we shared,

referring to 4.3.16 DATE it looks like you could x=date(,right(variable,5),'J') which should give you 26 Nov 2012 then you could y=date('U',x) which would give you 10/26/12 so, putting it together this way your_date=substr(y,4,3)||left(y,3)||right(x,4) which should give you: 26/10/2012 you can do it...

1. REDEFINE is a COBOL keyword. It is used to map the same memory differently. 2. CURSORs are DB2 objects, qualified by the plan name (module). even though the attributes of cursor definition in two separate modules (plans) are the same, does not mean they are the same cursor. 3. if the sub-module n...

Venky, instead of thinking: the above file contain spaces in between the records. think: the above file has records that are all spaces. now, when you think about it that way, an IFTHEN with an overlay of a seq number that is edited at 6 places with leading zeroes NOT suppressed would probably be an...
