You?re going to have to give us more information than that. Many of the members here are very good, but not mind readers . 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.
have comp's or alphanumerics, but among the field, and i dont know the multiple layouts.
A want to convert a field of line of a file, that i dont know the layout (and have comp's in some positions in a line of the file but in other position of other lines), to a format display (without comp's)

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". _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - firstname.lastname@example.org
