One of the fields in my output file needs to be written based on two field values in the Input file. If there is no match for the criteria I need to keep the same value as was in the input file. Let me explain with an example.

INPUT FILE
------------

12 harry
11 tommy

I need to check this condition in my JCL.
If field 1 = 12 and field 2 = harry, change it to johny
else keep it same as the output file

Hence my output file will look like
johny
tommy

how do I achieve this?

Thanks for your help. I have solved it using CHANGE subparameter.

Thats cool...

It can also be done by OVERLAY Feature of DFSORT with the help of IF-THEN. But You MUST have DFSORT for that.
