Question:
We need to reorder field in a flat file using the mainframe version of GTXGEN. How can this be done using DEFSRC and DEFTGT definitions?
Answer:
GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(GTXGEN) provides a sample job, that references inputs as delivered in the installation.

The DEFSRC and DEFTGT datasets, in general, are generated from PL/I or COBOL copybooks as described in the documenatation.

The sample job uses these inputs:
DEFSRC='GRIDTOOL.LIB.DEFCSV(TEST)',
DEFTGT='GRIDTOOL.LIB.DEFCSV(TEST1)'
