DFSORT - replace low-values X'00'

Postby aplambeck » Mon Apr 28, 2008 8:41 pm

Hello,

I have a file with two different record types and I need to replace the low-values.

The first low-values were cut by DFSORT with "OPTION=COPY" and "INREC FIELDS=(4,813)". I have read our IBM Bookmanager Libraries for DFSORT but I haven't found any examples to replace the low-values. Some tests with the CHANGE- or OVERLAY-option in INREC weren't succesful. The low-values in line 1 are from position 81-813 it it's necessary.

Does anybody have a solution for my problem (I guess it's easy) ?
