You''ll need a SORT statement, and BUILD on OUTREC. start,length,PD,TO=ZD,LENGTH= on BUILD for the conversions, C';' for the delimiter and the remaining data unchanged.

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

No, we cannot. You did not provide any details (such as field starting position and length for each PD, for example). If you want generic information, go read the SORT manual. If you want specific information, you must provide specific information.

You cannot do it with JCL alone - you need to execute your sort utility. Moved to DFsort part of the forum.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
