Just noticed. my bad. Was so happy to get one of these sort parses to work
I did not bother to double check the TS's request or desired output.
Frank will have to come up with a solution where sometimes the data wraps from on record to another, and sometimes does not. _________________ Dick Brenholtz

Thanks Dick for the answer, but as MrSpock rightly pointed i need the record to be created by merging ddd and dd.
Also i should mention that the number of delimiters in a single record can also be more than 1.
Is it possible in SORT or should i try with COBOL??

DFSORT does NOT have any built-in functions for "unwrapping" fields that are split between records. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - email@example.com
