This is quite simple to code programatically (in Cobol, rexx ect), but I wonder if it can be done through DFSORT ?
I have a file containing a file name (up to 44 bytes), followed by a 8 byte string (always in pos 46). I want to replace the 'high level qualifier' in position 1, with the 8 byte string, for example.
I've looked at the DFSORT manual, PARSE, OVERLAY, FINDREP, but I can't quite get this to work. I could write some rexx to do this, but is it possible in DFSORT ?
