how to fix misalignment in output dataset using rexx?

Postby SKANDA » Thu Dec 08, 2016 11:46 am

please help me to fix this issue,

PUSH NEXTFILE , 'DCLGEN ' , LINE_COUNT , COMP
"EXECIO DISKW 1 OUTDD"
here NEXTFILE -> variable with dynamic length (xxx.yyy.zzz(mem1)),(xxx.yyy.zzz(memb2))
DCLGEN -> constant string
LINE_COUNT -> Variable with dynamic length(1234),(123)
COMP -> Variable with dynamic length (complex),(simple)
so when I view the report, it was like,
xxx.yyy.zzz(mem1) dclgen 1234 complex
xxx.yyy.zzz(memb2) dclgen 123 simple

actually I want to have report with constant alignment , like
xxx.yyy.zzz(mem1) {5space} dclgen {5space} 1234 {5space} complex
xxx.yyy.zzz(memb2){4space} dclgen{5space} 123 {6space} simple
Eventhough the length of dynamic variable varies ,I want to start the next string at constant position.
is this possible?

Certainly, see the LEFT function in the manual. And CENTER and RIGHT for other alignments.

These users thanked the author willy jensen for the post:
