I am having a file with numbers stored with decimal point. I would like to convert into COMP-2 format as it need to passed to an existing cobol program for generating one report. Just want to know whether it's possible in SORT without modifying Cobol program.

e.g
+000011.88
-000567.99

I tried with OUTREC OVERLAY=(30:1,10,SFF,TO=FL,LENGTH=8) but seems TO=FL can't be used.

Appreciate your help on this

Jathampy,

DFSORT does not support converting to COMP-2 format.
