Editing a field using Sord Card

Postby sethukutty » Fri Jun 20, 2014 6:41 pm

Hi,

I am looking for help on the following request:

I have the following 2 fields in the input file.
1. Application Code-[Length 1 Char]
2. Time (not in consistent format. Basically its hidden in 4 ways)-[Length 8 Char]

I/P file --> O/P file (B denotes Blank) (Let me show how the time is hiding)

W0173504B --> W17:35:04 (If the first Char is W then time starts from 3rd char with the length of 6 in the i/p file)

X1305BBBB --> X13:05:00 (If the first Char is X then time starts from 2nd char with the length of 4 in the i/p file).

Y20B08B57 --> Y20:08:57 (If the first Char is Y then time starts from 2nd char with the length of 8 but there is blank between HH , MM & SS in the i/p file).

Z11555500 --> Z11:55:55 (If the first Char is Z then time starts from 2nd char with the length of 6 in the i/p file)

I want all the O/P in the above format which is App CodeHH:MM:SS

Thanks
Sethu

What is a "Sord Card"? If you meant "Sort Card", why did you post in the COBOL forum? If you did not mean "Sort Card", what DID you mean? You did mention COBOL, so what does "Sord Card" mean in the context of COBOL?

Furthermore, what help do you need? You did not indicate where you are having problems. Remember that this is a HELP forum, not a WRITE-THE-CODE-FOR-YOU forum. We will help with errors and problems but if you want anyone on this forum to write code for you, expect to pay the going rate (500 to 1500 US dollars per day, or the equivalent in other currencies).
