How to split fixed length (POSITIONAL\ASCII FIXED) files

Hi,
While processing any delimited file data which is big in size, i am splitting the file into smaller chunks by using tfileoutputdelimited advanced property i.e. "split output in several files".
But when i am processing any fixed length file (POSITIONAL\ASCII FIXED), there is no such split option in tfileoutputpositional component. I tried searching a lot but didn't find the exact reason that why there is no option of "split output in several files" in tfileoutputpositional component. Is it not possible to split fixed length files?
Thanks,

Hi,
I think you have to use an intermediate tFileOutpoutDelimited file, then read it again to produce the corresponding tFileOutputPositional in such a case.

Hello TRF,
Thanks for your reply. But i am looking for the logical answer that why can't we directly split positional output into chuncks like we do in delimited files.
