You should have posted the hex representation of Your data

ispf HEX ON is Your friend
cheers

Why post in the Forum Rules?
Topic moved.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

That input looks like 2 packed decimal fields not one binary field.

1) Your input data do not look like binary (e.g. COMP in COBOL, or BI/FI in SORT).
Rather they do look like packed decimal (e.g. COMP-3 in COBOL, or PD in SORT).

2) From your "files display" it is absolutely not clear how your "files" are related, at all, to your SORT statements example???
Please, present FULL example of your test (simplified as much as possible) to find out the actual processing issues.

The acutual input genarating from Cobol Prog and the fields defined in cobol prog as below
XXXXX PIC S9(9) USAGE COMP
XXXXX PIC S9(4) USAGE COMP
i need to convert the above data to numeric format for other process.
i thought it was binary so i wrote a sort to convert ZD but didnot work

Since it is two separate fields, you have to handle each individually in SORT:
SORT FIELDS=COPY                      
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,4,BI,TO=ZD,LENGTH=9,5,2,BI,TO=ZD,LENGTH=5)
Also, if the data set is variable length instead of fixed length, you need to add 4 to each of your locations because of the RDW.

Its working ...Thanks a lot Robert
the data set is fixed length only.
i have some doubts about sort card .why did take length 9 and 5?
never mind if you explain clearly that would be great..
