DATE conversion to Gregorian

Postby ajuatsgp » Sun Jan 13, 2013 12:13 pm

Hi,
I have a date field defined as S9(7) comp-3. It contains date in CCYYDDD format. I am trying to convert this date to Gregorian format as CCYY-MM-DD.
I have checked the manual z/OS V1R12.0 DFSORT Application Programming Guide; Table 49. TOJUL and TOGREG output date fields.
If my understanding of the table is not wrong then the DATE conversion I am trying can not be done.

Please let me know how to do the above DATE conversion.

Thanks

You may have read the manuals - and not very carefully - but you obviously did not search the forum. Do so and you will find your solution in here.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

When I opened this thread, the very first "Related Topic" was "To obtain date in Gregorian format". Try reading that thread.

Hi,
As I mentioned in my question my input date is in P'ccyyddd' format.
So using Y4X and TOGREG didn't work for me.
Can you tell what should I use?

Thanks

I think you can't use separator for COMP-3 (PD). You need first to convert to CH or ZD.
Or you can try in INREC TOGREG, and in the outrec place the separator(-)

I'm justing guessing ... I use SYNCSORT ... Please post your solution if you find it.

Maybe these links can help you:

Please show your JCL, Sort control cards, and full sysout from the step which failed.

Did you have a look at the message ICE126A? There is a DFSORT messages manual, or you can use IBM LookAt (google it, click from google, paste in the code, click, read).

You'll find that you have an overlapping field. You specify 24 as the starting column for your YYYYMMDD, then a blank, then attempt to start a field at column 31.

Go through the message. You don't have many fields, so it is easy. Go through it, so you don't have to ask next time.
