Hello pjagathis.

Here is an example:
//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,2,ZD,BI)
/*

If you provide sample data, or details about the actual record layout, we will be able to provide you with better assistance.

Hi Alissa,

My input record is as follows..

LRECL=20

22222222222222222222
22222222222222222222
22222222222222222222

My output should be in COMP(BI)..

I tried using the below code...

SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTREC BUILD=(1,20,ZD,BI)

I tried your code but it saying error as follows..

OUTREC ARITHMETIC OVERFLOW
SYNCSMF CALLED BY SYNCSORT; RC=0000


ThanX in advance...
Thanks and Regards,
Jagathis P

why not review a bit Your understanding of the representation of numbers in the different bases,
and the relative limit for the maximum number of digits that can be represented

a stupid programmers hand calculator would have shown that
18446744073709551615 is the greatest unsigned that can be represented in 64 bits

as a reminder here is the powers of 2 table up to 2**64

pjagathis,

Why, oh why, would you want to do that? 20 digits! What real 20 digits do you have that you need to represent in binary?
