So you have a sort question - DFSort in particular - and you post in the JCL section not the DFsort section. Also, you were requested to use the code tags. I will move your post to the correct place and "code" it for you. In future please post correctly using the code tags where appropriate. If you do not know how to ise the code tags then please search the forum as it is often explained.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly. Regards Nic
Thanks Billy, for the information. The main idea is to convert EBCDIC file to ASCII. Till now I have been using CONVERT option as I am having a Fixed length (FB) file for Input. Now it has changed to Variable length(VB), so I am unable to use it and searching for alternatives.
Can you please suggest any methods to do this. Thank You
I need to use the output ASCII file as input to other Job. I was using OCOPY option earlier. I couldn't able to understand the reason why ETOA is not working in the JCL I posted above. If there is any method to convert a variable length file from EBCDIC to ASCII, please let me know. Thanks.
