MAINFRAME - TIP OF THE DAY : When you use COUNT operator to set a return code of 12 or 4 if a specified data set is EMPTY, NOTEMPTY, HIGHER(n), LOWER(n), EQUAL(n) or NOTEQUAL(n). where n is a specified number of records. If you use the RC4 operand, SORT sets RC=4; otherwise it sets RC=12. E.g. COUNT FROM(IN) EMPTY

Hi,
I have to copy a VB to a new VB file but:
I want to reduce the record length from 680 to 670.
The "File Length" will not change (=3000 + 4 bytes for Length)

I know that with DFSORT can handle this but I dont know the exact script for this.

Can anybody kelp me? Thanks!

There is no concept called file length, only record length.
