What is the RECFM and LRECL of your file?

If you use INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,KEYBEGIN=(1,4)... you can PUSH the value from the first record of a group onto each record of a group (including that first one). If you locate this, temporarily, at position 8:, where you can put the value from 5,3.

You can then use two OUTFILs, one with an INCLUDE= for the PDF value in the extension, and the other OUTFIL having SAVE.

You can use BUILD on OUTFIL to cut the records back down to seven bytes again.
