Have you tried anything? Have you a access to a SyncSort manual? If not, you should get one.

You can find a lot of example code here. You're going to need OPTION COPY (or SORT FIELDS=COPY), INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=condition and OVERLAY. Have a crack at it. Let us know if you get stuck.

I have tried with the below
 SORT FIELDS=COPY,             
     IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,3,EQ,0)),
     OVERLAY=(30:C'ZE')   


I am getting below error

SORT FIELDS=COPY,                       
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,3,EQ,0)),           
    *                                   
    OVERLAY=(30:C'ZE')

You are jesting, yes?

You can try by just adding another IFTHEN. The IFTHEN is part of the INREC, so you'll need a "continuation" for your existing IFTHEN (a comma after the final closing-bracket).

Another was is with IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT, which goes first and which is executed for every record. On that you can set to NZ, with the zero condition overwriting the value later.

There is also IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE, which goes after the IFTHEN=(WHEN=(condition, and is executed for records which have not had a true test against them.

Best thing is to read up in the manual, look at some examples, ensure you understand them, experiment until you do, and then choose one of the above methods.

If you see the Search box at the start of your topic, put INIT in there and see what you can find.
