Revers field on SYSOUT

Dear friends.
I want to reverse any filed from SORTIN and reformat and put to SORTOUT.
For example I want ACBDEFGHIJ converted to EDBCAFGHIJ (reversing only first 5 characters). Which control statement or technique I must use?

You can use BUILD. There is no REVERSE function.

BUILD takes data from the "current" record and creates a new one.

INREC BUILD=(5,1,4,1,3,1,2,1,1,1,6,5)

Should get you close.
