Steve Coalbran,

You need VLSCMP and NOT VLSHRT to use on INCLUDE/OMIT.

VLSCMP specifies whether DFSORT is to pad "short" variable-length INCLUDE/OMIT compare fields with binary zeros. A short field is one where the variable-length record is too short to contain the entire field, that is, the field extends beyond the record. VLSCMP and NOVLSCMP apply to the INCLUDE and OMIT statements and to the INCLUDE and OMIT parameters of the OUTFIL statement. The compare fields are only padded temporarily for testing; they are not actually changed for output.

Use the following control cards to remove the first 11 bytes and still retain a VB file

//SYSIN    DD *                                     
  OPTION COPY,VLSCMP                               
                                                   
  OMIT COND=(8,07,CH,EQ,C'ISRSUPC',OR,             
             7,06,CH,EQ,C'LINE-Ä',OR,               
             7,10,CH,EQ,C' ')                       
                                                   
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,2,BI,GE,16),BUILD=(1,4,16))
//*                                                                 


If you want an FB file, then use the following control cards

//SYSIN    DD *                             
  OPTION COPY,VLSCMP                       
                                           
  OMIT COND=(8,07,CH,EQ,C'ISRSUPC',OR,     
             7,06,CH,EQ,C'LINE-Ä',OR,       
             7,10,CH,EQ,C' ')               
                                           
  INREC OVERLAY=(134:X)                     
  OUTFIL VTOF,BUILD=(16,122)               
//*


Btw how did end up with a VB file from SUPERC? The batch invocation of SUPERC(PGM=ISRSUPC) creates an FBA dataset with an LRECL of 133.

That's much better but it still has the blank lines.
Here's a snippet of the input file which you can probably identify as a TWS logfile.

This is not a REXX forum I know, but I ran up a REXX solution that works, albeit an extra step! I'd probably compile to CEXEC to save the ICEGENER step but this is a useful technique for development (and cross-node execution!?).
This also caters for the stuff at the end of the SUPERC listing which I hadn't yet started on in the DFSORT solution - which I would still like to get working.

Hi Kolusu,
Just re-read the responses here.
I don't know. I guess they've overwritten it in the job that extracts from the TWS log.
I just get the file! :lol:

If you return the record-length check in the OMIT, your blank record will disappear. As a VBA, it will be a five-byte record with a whatever control character.

Thanks Billy. What's that mean in DFSORT SYSIN terms?
Input file is not VBA it is VB 137 (don't blame me!) ;)

Hi Steve - re the comment in your signature: have you referred to Terry's topic in "Suggestions & Feedback"?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards
Nic

1,2 (of a variable-length record) is the record-length. If there are record-lengths you don't want, you can OMIT them. I guess since it is not VBA then there is a single blank there :-)

We know from an earlier error message there is a five-byte record. I suspect that is your blank line. I think SDSF is going to just pad in the display, so there it looks like a long bunch of trailing spaces. I just don't think the trailing spaces will be there (else the V is pointless) so a blank line is going to be just one space.

No access at the moment. If you look at your data with edit, it should show just the data? It would explain why the C' ' or C'with 10 blanks' does not work for you.

OPTION COPY
OUTFIL FTOV,BUILD=(1,2,BI,TO=ZD,LENGTH=3,X,5,132)

If you run that on your input, it should show your records, prefixed by the record-lengths. Should help you see exactly what you have. Untested, sorry. The X is just a blank to separate the record-length from the data.

I dont even seem to be able to explain things properly and I can't comprehnds nuffin today. Fridays is too late in the week and its afternoon already. "Suc!"(Swedish). :shock:
Still hoping for an "executable" DFSORT solution to my problem.
C'mon!? I did give the "ibmmainframeforum" world an "executable" Rexx one? :lol:
