OVERLAY, SQUEEZE, JFY, ICETOOL, SORT

Hello to everyone,

I'm having problems with the sort release prior to April 2006 which doesen't accept instructions like JFY, SQZ, OVERLAY....
I've an input file like this:

File A:
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$000000000000000001$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$000000000000000000$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$
$000000000000000000$ $000000000000123456$ $
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$000000001234567890$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$000000000000000000$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$

The result I'd liketo have is the following:
File B:
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$000000000000000001$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$$$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$
$$$$$$000000000000123456$$$
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$000000001234567890$XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX$$$

So, when I've blanks or zeroes I should substitute them with $ and when I've values higher than blanks or zeroes should keep the same format of layout. Does anyone have any idea of how to do this via SORT or ICETOOL or ICEMAN ? Thank's in advance

I know it's a stupid question, but why don't you have the PTF installed? It's free and easy.....

You will need the April, 2006 PTF to do this kind of thing. Ask your System Programmer to install it. The alternative would be to write an E15 of your own with the logic to do what you want.
