Writing a header using the data inside the input file

Postby sreekanth_reddy » Fri Apr 17, 2020 1:53 pm

Hi,

My requirement is to build a sort card which will do the following this for me

My input data:
record length is 90

ABC .............[spaces]20200417(date)
DEF .............[spaces]20200417
GHI .............[spaces]20200417

1) i want a write the header with date, where date should be taken from the input file as mentioned as (date)
2) i want to change the record length from 90 to 20
3) i want to convert the data b/w 4th byte to 12th byte to HEX

output file should be like

Header (Date inside the input file)
ABC .............
DEF .............
GHI .............

please help me in writing sort for this condition.
Thanks in advance

Please use the code tags when presenting data. As it stands, the data you posted is unclear - are the strings "[spaces]" actual data or some method of indicating spaces in your data?

Without code tags:
abc def
with code tags:
abc    def

I cut and pasted the data between the two examples so it is identical.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Sorry for confusion

Input data:

----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8----+----9
AB    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12                                       20200101
CD    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12                                       20200101
EF    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12                                       20200101
GH    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12                                       20200101
 

Expected Output :
----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8----+----9
Header: 20200101
AB    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12
CD    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12
EF    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12
GH    12   12 1 1        1 1  12     1   12

Use the sodding code tags! withoutthem the data does not line up.

Don't know what the code tags are? Research the forums. Or use the "POST REPLY" button instead of the "Quick Reply" button.

Meanwhile I have applied the tags to your data and aligned it properly,

0) RTFM, RTFM, and RTFM

1) there is a date field in every input record. Which one do you want to use for the header???

2) use BUILD= parameter

3) use option HEX within BUILD parameter

Ans: Every record has a date at last.. now i want remove that date at last for each record in the file and place single date as a header.
Here date is not current date or system date... date might be differs but all records in the file will be same date.

As per the original post - the first record. But it can be from any record as, per the last post, each record has the same date.

sergeyken

Ans: I want to keep first record date as header.

Why I said any record bcz there date is common for every record .
After writing that date as header... I want to truncate the date and reduce the record length.
