expand a binary field from half word to full using syncsort

Postby raja1128 » Fri Jan 23, 2009 11:01 pm

hi all,

I need to expand a binary field from 2 bytes to 4 using syncsort
here are the details ..

file: fixed block, size 36
field: 2 bytes - PIC S9(04) COMP, starts from byte 21

I have to expand the field to 4 bytes ( PIC S9(08) COMP ) and retain the value.
I went through the manuals but couldnt find anything except inserting binary zeroes ond overlay.
i dont want to insert zeroes and i tried overlay with no success (it wont move the rest of fields to right)

kindly help....thanks in advance..

my post on same topic got deleted in ibmmainframes.com which is probably for professionals.
hope it works here as this site is for beginners and students. thanks

You posted this in the DFSORT Forum, but said you are using Syncsort. So I'm moving it to the Syncsort Forum.
