Can you please give us some examples of the input you?re dealing with and what needs to be done with it? Please be very specific in your examples and processing. The more specific you are the more specific we can be with a solution.

Thanks, and post back soon

Dave

Thank for your point Dave, but i dont need that you gave me the exact jcl code, but the instruction or instructions that made my wish possible (no need for mind readers)

The file (with hexa):

000000000000002
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF4444444444444444444444444
0000000000000020000000000000000000000000

As you can see in each line have have a different layout. I want to convert this in a string with no comps but i dont not how because a dont know the multiple layouts of each line.

nor any utility.

If I'm not wrong you'll need to specify the start and length of any field you want to convert.

mantorras2006,

Where and how is this file being generated in your system.

If this particular file is being read as I/P for some programs or O/P for programs then there should be some way of identifying each record and then it processes it.

well If this file is not generated by the system then one has to think Smile

And as acevedo mentioned one should definitely need the start and end position by which we can try some means ??? that info wud be useful.

I was just thinking

If we have COMP filed and we need to convert ...the usual way of doing it wud be to declare a equivalent numeric variable and then

redefine it into a alphanumeric.


If i am not wrong if you can come up with some details reg the start and end positions i blive there is a way in SORT by which we can convert the

data types. I am not sure , but yes if you come back with details i am sure we can get info from Frank on SORT and figure out a means to do.

Thanks,
Veera.

Yes, DFSORT can convert BI values to formatted numeric values, but you have to know the starting position and length of each value to be converted. All data is binary - the interpretation of the data may be other than binary but there's no magic way for a program to know that unless there are specific rules such as "the binary field is from positions 5-8" or "each binary field starts with X'FFFF' and is 4 bytes long".
