Hi,

I tried calculating the record count & removing the leading spaces in a single sort step but, couldn't succeed. Though, what I could achieve was to remove leading spaces in a separate step. Please refer to the sort given below.

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT                 
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*               
//SORTIN DD *                           
     1                                 
     3                                 
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*                   
//SYSIN    DD    *                     
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                     
  INREC BUILD=(1,14,JFY=(SHIFT=LEFT))   
/*                                     

Hope it helps.

Thanks & Regards,
Nik

pjagathis,

It is not easy to do what you want. Why do you want it left-justified? If the data is to be read by something external to the mainframe, why don't you take the zero-suppression off? 000000004 is the same as 4bbbbbbbbb for anything which wants to read that figure.

Hi Nik22Dec,

ThanX Nik22Dec...

I also tried this yesterday.. but i am trying to do in single sort step.... Or we can use any logic to get it done ???

Hi BillyBoyo,

ThanX...

But my requirement is to suppress the leading zeros and left justify the count... Let me try further.. i googled it for many times but i didn't get solution for this... we can do it 2 steps.. but i am trying to do in single step.. since i have to create count for more than 6 files.. so that i can reduce the step...

Thanx...
Thanks and Regards,

I understand that it is your requirement, but I don't understand why. What is the business necessity for it to be like that?

To show you the sort of thing it will take, look at this: http://ibmmainframes.com/about54238.html Scroll back two posts, and you'll see some code. I'd not like that sort of code included anywhere just to do that, unless there is a really, really, good reason.

Thanks for letting us know.

There is no reason I can think of that this should cause a problem to anyone trying to read those totals in any language. If you get complaints, explain the situation to your boss, show his the amount of code you'd need (and the example won't work for you directly, you'd need to work on it) and get them to sort it out.
