Have you changed jobs so you now have DFSORT?

Can you show what sort cards you have, a sample of your input, and the expected output, with recfms and lrecls.

OVERLAY=(16:C'Z'),BUILD=(01:01,15,16:C'Y',17:17,62))


its my sort card but getting the error: WER270A OUTREC STATEMENT : DUPLICATE PARM FOUND

You have Syncsort, so please don't post in the DFSORT forum. Your topic has been moved.

I don't have Syncsort, but you can't have OVERLAY and BUILD on the same IFTHEN. You don't need to.

You haven't shown any sample data, so can't tell much more yet.

Just code the OVERLAY like you have, except with the value you want. No need for a BUILD. OVERLAY will take the current record, make the changes you specify, and leave the rest of the record undisturbed.

If all records need Y or some other same value you can make the OVERLAY unconditional.

If, for the data records, you need to do other things, you can make that conditional and do a second OVERLAY, putting the first as IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT.

  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(16:C'Y')


  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(16:C'Y')),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(condition),OVERLAY=(someothercolumnsanddata))


Something like one of those. Hit your manual, try some things out. Let us know.
