It's not clear what you want to do.
Please show an example of the records in each input file and what you expect for output. Explain the "rules" for getting from input to output. Give the RECFM and LRECL of the input file. Give the starting position, length and format of all relevant fields. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - firstname.lastname@example.org

Now i have created a dataset using a program.Now any of these fields can have some characters other than A-Z or 0-9 for example Name field can have a value as $id.
Now I have one more dataset which as record layout as follows:
1)Special char PIC X(1)
2)Actual char PIC X(1)
Now this file give me the corresponding character which should replace the special char from first file.
For example above I have given an example that Name field can have value $id.Now I have to replace this $ with some other value which is defined in file 2.
Likewise i have to it for all such special character appearing in my file1 with cooresponding character defined in file2.
