If you were a poster on the forum where I'm an admin, you wouldn't be anymore.

Yes. use IEBGENER. If you do not know how to do it using IEBGENER, find the Utilities manual on the IBM web site and look it up yourself. You will learn far more by looking up the answer yourself than you would by having somebody spoon-feed you what to do.

the classic reply from a lazy spoiled kid who expects to be spoon fed and do nothing himself

being a beginner does not exempt You from doing a bit of homework ( aka researching ) Yourself and exercising Your neurons

wise to read and meditate on

This forum IS for beginners and students. However, that does not excuse you from doing some work yourself. If you are unable, for any reason, to actually find the manual and look up the syntax yourself (after being told which utility to use, which is in itself a major help) -- then you need to go find a different career path, one that would not require so much effort on your part. People who succeed in IT tend to be very self-motivated to learn things and use the manuals extensively to teach themselves what they need to know.

If you want help when you ask a question, you need to give the details of what you want to do. Otherwise, we can only guess.

However, as an example, if you wanted to replace positions 11-14 in each input record with spaces, you could use a DFSORT job like the following:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   INREC OVERLAY=(11:4X)
/*


You can change 11: and 4X to meet your needs. For example, if you just want to change position 21 to a blank, you would use 21:1X instead of 11:4X.

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
