Y2T data format processes dates with a 2-digit year. Therefore, it is not necessary to specify the first 2 positions of the 4-digit year. The century is then processed based on your CENTWIN option (either your installation default or runtime parameter). Since I did not know how your CENTWIN installation option is configured at your site, I specified CENTWIN=80 as a runtime PARM, which will give you a century window between 1930-2029. For more details regarding CENTWIN processing, please refer to Chapter 5 in the SyncSort for z/OS 1.3 Programmer's Guide for complete details of the PARM Options.
