Hi,

Assuming we have flat file with 100 records......

My requirement is to copy records positioned in odd # (like 1,3, etc...) into one file and even positioned records into another file using SORT tool.

Please note, no column/variable in the record has these values.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Regards,
Murali Mohan K

check out the following jcl.....

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                 
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                 
//SORTIN DD DSN=... input file                             
//ODD DD DSN=...  output file1 (odd records)                         
//EVEN DD DSN=...  output file2 (even records)                       
//SYSIN DD *                             
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(ODD,EVEN),SPLIT         
/*     


Hope this helps......

Regards,
jai
