I want to just use JCL to write a record into a new data set. There is no input file, just an output file. Is there some utility I can use ? " )

Thanks & Best regards,
Ban

IEBGENER, SORT, IDCAMS (REPRO), and others.

Hi superk,
Accturally, I have tried SORT
SYSIN *

SORT FIELD=COPY
OUTREC FIELD=(1:C'GEFT')
END

But the file is empty. So can you give me a example of such a utility?

Thanks a lot. " )

You can do it with DFSORT. For example, if your output file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=100, you can use a DFSORT job like this:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
data
/*
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...   output file (FB/100)
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   OUTREC FIELDS=(1,80,100:X)
/*


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
