Hi,

Can someone provide me the sort card to subtract one day from the date field which is in mmddyy format from the input file and write it to an output file

For Ex:-

Input file:-

032712



The expected output file:-

Output file:-

Hello ibmmf4u.

Here is a Syncsort MFX for z/OS 1.4 solution:

//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='CENTWIN=80'     
//SORTIN  DD *                             
032612                                     
032712                                     
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSIN   DD *                             
  SORT FIELDS=COPY   
  OUTREC FIELDS=(DATEADD=(1,6,DTNS,-1,DAY)) 
/*

Hi Alissa,

Thanks for the quick reply. we are currently using Z/OS 1.3.2.2R in our shop.

I tried the above code, it gave me an error.

Is it possible to achieve the same in 1.3.2.2R version??If not can you provide me any alternate solution.

Thanks in advance!!

Date arithmetic is not supported in SyncSort for z/OS 1.3. That is why you are receiving the syntax error. You must upgrade to release 1.4 to avoid this error.
