Hi,

I am facing problem in hardcoding empty file( ie file without any records). I have requirement , i need to populate something into an empty file.

I am using ICETOOL or SORT to do so. But it is not working. Again the empty file is being getting created.

For eg:

Input: Empty file.

I expect output should be:

claims record count = 0
claims detail count - 0

only the above 2 records i need to write into output file. Is there any way to do using ICETOOL or DFSORT?

I tried with the following control card thats not working.

Code:

//TOOLIN   DD *
  COPY FROM(UT01) TO(UT11) USING(CT01)
/*
//CT01CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTREC FIELDS=(C'claims record count = 0')

You could use

Code:

//S02SRT1  EXEC PGM=SORT                                         
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD *                                                   
claims record count = 0
claims detail count - 0
//SYSIN    DD *                                                   
   SORT FIELDS=(COPY) 
//SORTOUT DD DSN=your.output.file,DISP=SHR

Yes, there are several ways to do it with DFSORT or DFSORT's ICETOOL, but you haven't given us enough information to tell you how to do it. Telling us it's not working doesn't give us any information since you didn't show your complete job or the error messages you received.

What RECFM and LRECL do you want for your output data set? IQ's job will work if you want RECFM=FB and LRECL=80 and can be adapted to other attributes, as can your own job. But you need to provide more details if you want more specific help.
