How to define previous day using system symbols in Symnames?

Postby skankatala » Fri Feb 03, 2012 1:00 pm

Hi......

When I am using //Symnames
I am able to define the Current day string using system symbols as CURRDATE,S'&LYR4..&LJDAY'

How to define previous day using the system symbols in the above format (i.e. YY.DDD) ?

Why not post in the appropriate section of the forum for your sort product? This is NOT a JCL question.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

if your intention is to get the current day-1 then you can use date3-1 which will give you the desired results.
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*           
//SORTIN   DD *                 
ABC                             
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*           
//SYSIN    DD *                 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY               
  INREC OVERLAY=(10:DATE3(.)-1) 
//*


the output of this is
----+----1----+----2
ABC      2012.033
