Use IBM's SuperC program, which is available under ISPF in the Utilities menu (option 3), option 12 (SuperC Compare data sets).

There are also third-party products available, such as Comparex.

Hi Naveen,

you can use option 3.13 (SuperCE) to compare two data sets

There you have compare type, select apropriate one,
-------------------------------------------------------------

Compare Type
2 1. File
2. Line
3. Word
4. Byte


if you want mention some conditions for compare type E on the command prompt and enter your crieteria

Let me know if you find any difficulty

Hi All,

This compare discussion is great.

I have a list of sequential files that needs to be compared against one file.

e.g.:

XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD001
to be compared against
XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD001.BAK

and I need to produce an output file containing records which do not exist
in the first file.

However, thsi can be tedious because I have several sets of files that needs to be compared. Take this set of example below:

XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD001 / XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD001.BAK
XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD002 / XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD002.BAK

:
:
XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD999 / XXXXX.YYYYY.ABCD999.BAK


How can I automate this process? I was thinking of creating a program that will process these files in a loop, each time incrementing by 1. However, the JCl needs a definite name for the files we specify.

Any workaround?

Hello,

You can set up a small PROC that compares the common file against a file what has the 001-999 specified at run time. Use a symbolic parameter for the number part of the dataset name.

When you run this, you will still need an EXEC statement for each, but with a little bit of editing, you will have a "whole" set very quickly - after you create the "whole" set, you could remove any that you wanted to skip or did not exist.

The basic EXEC would be:
Code:
//S000   EXEC MYCOMPR,NBR=000


Repeat that statement 9 more times and change the Stepname and NBR from 000 to 009. Repeat some more until you have 100 EXEC statements. One hundred steps at a time should be enough. Depending on your situation, you may want to run only 10 at a time - take your pick.

You can then change the "//S0" to whatever hundreds group you want and change "R=0" the same way for each of the hundreds.

By honeypriya,
we can compare two dataset by using JCL Utility IEBCOMPR

She is right but i jst want to add somemorethings in that:

IEBCOMPR: mainly used to check whether it is PS or PDS.



Syntax in the JCL: COMPARE TYPORG = PS / PDS -> Return code

Note: If Return Code = 0,files are of same type(Either they r Ps or PDS)

If Return Code = 8,files are of different type(May b one Ps and other is PDS)

hey,,

u can use this TSo command also.

Go inside the file(File1) u want to compare in View or Edit mode.

Then give COMP X 'FILE2'


This will show where all the difference lies between file1 and file2.

COMP (or COMPARE) is not a TSO command; it is an ISPF Editor Primary Command.
