You can use the SPLICE operator of DFSORT's ICETOOL to do this kind of thing. For an example, see the Smart DFSORT Trick "Join fields from two files on a key" at:

http://www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/software/sort/mvs/tricks/

If you need more specific help, show an example of the records in each input file and the expected output records. Also, give the RECFM and LRECL of each input file, and the starting position, length and format of each relevant field.
