Dear all,

Just wondering, i have the following case :

Code:

Input
field1   field2   field3
123      456      a
123      000      b
000      789      c


Code:

Output
456a
123b
789c


basically, what i want to do is if field 2 has value, take field 2 & 3 to form the output, if field 2 = 0, take field 1 & 3 to form the output

Now, what i do is to do DFSORT

Code:

sort 1 :
   SORT FIELDS=(1,3,CH,A)
   INCLUDE COND=(4,3,ZD,EQ,0)
   OUTREC FIELDS=(1,3,7,1)

sort 2 :
   SORT FIELDS=(4,3,CH,A)
   INCLUDE COND=(4,3,ZD,NE,0)
   OUTREC FIELDS=(4,3,7,1)
   
sort 3 :
merge sort 1 + sort 2 to form the output


My question is: is there a much simplier way to do so? by ICETOOLS or DFSORT?
Thanks!

You can use DFSORT's IFTHEN function to do that kind of thing much more easily. Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
123456a
123000b
000789c
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(4,3,ZD,EQ,+0),BUILD=(1,3,7,1)),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,BUILD=(4,3,7,1))
/*


For complete information on DFSORT's IFTHEN function, see:
