MAINFRAME - TIP OF THE DAY :
When you specified V for RECFM parameter, LRECL value is largest record in the file plus 4 bytes. These four bytes contain the actual length of each variable length record in the file

I am trying to read an input file which has a fixed length of 300 bytes and each field in a record are delimited by "|" pipe symbol. For instance

I want to include only specific FIXED columns of each record from the input file say 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th,9th, 10th, 13th, 14th, 15th in the output file. Is there any option or way to select the records based on the column using the delimiter without fixed length record?
Also I missed one info. Last field in each record will be having either 'Y' or 'N'. Based on the value, if it is 'Y', we should place the record with specific column in output file 1 and if it is 'N' means output file 2. _________________ B@L@
