I have two field on my input record that are in packed decimal format(2 decimal positions) one is 9(5)v99 and the other is 9(3)v99, my output record i would like to get the value of FLD2 subtracted from FLD1 in packed decimal format 9(5)v99, is this possible with syncsort. Any examples would be apprcieated.

FYI:

The formats like 9(5)V99 et.al. are all UNPACKED (or ZONED) DECIMALS, rather than PACKED DECIMALS.
Javas and Pythons come and go, but JCL and SORT stay forever.
