I am using a file which has date in YYYY-MM-DD format.
How can I convert it into YYYY-MM-DD format

For starters, I'm having problems seeing the difference between "YYYY-MM-DD" and "YYYY-MM-DD".....

Which utility do you want to use.....

I can use SORT/SYNCSORT but can't use other utilities like ICETOOL etc.

That is silly, ICETOOL is part of SORT....six of one, half dozen the other......

Never the less, I'm having problems seeing the difference between "YYYY-MM-DD" and "YYYY-MM-DD".....
What does your input look like and what do you want it to look like after 'conversion'?

Sorry....has to be converted from MM-DD-YYYY to YYYY-MM-DD format

File would be something like this
-------1234---------05-23-2005-------

Should look like this:
-------1234---------2005-05-23-------

Position of date field in the file before and after conversion should b same

Have you concidered investing in a downloaded sort manual?

000000000111111111122222222223
123456789012345678901234567890
-------1234---------05-23-2005-------
-------1234---------2005-05-23-------
outrec fields=(1:1,20,21:27,4,25:26,1,26:21,5,31:31,7)

This is the program:
01  IN-DATE.
  05  IN-DATE-MM   PIC 99.
  05  FILLER       PIC X.
  05  IN-DATE-DD   PIC 99.
  05  FILLER       PIC X.
  05  IN-DATE-YYYY PIC 9(4).

01  OUT-DATE.
  05  OUT-DATE-YYYY  PIC 9(4).
  05  FILLER         PIC X VALUE '-'.
  05  OUT-DATE-MM    PIC 99.
  05  FILLER         PIC X VALUE '-'.
  05  OUT-DATE-DD    PIC 99.


MOVE '05-23-2005' TO IN-DATE.

MOVE IN-DATE-MM   TO OUT-DATE-MM.
MOVE IN-DATE-DD   TO OUT-DATE-DD.
MOVE IN-DATE-YYYY TO OUT-DATE-YYYY.

DISPLAY 'BEFORE CONVERT: ' IN-DATE.
DISPLAY 'AFTER CONVERT: ' OUT-DATE.


This will be the output display:
BEFORE CONVERT: 05-23-2005
AFTER CONVERT: 2005-05-23
