Reply with quote

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to set the RETURN CODE to a job to 04 (as an example) if a specific field on the record is not numeric.

Let's say you have a file and in position 1 for a length of 10, you expect it to be numeric. When you check the value and it's not numeric, you want to set the return code to 04 to issue a warning to let someone know that there may be an issue with the file.

Thx!

What would be the format of the field (Packed Decimal, Zoned Decimal, Binary, etc.)?

It's ZD. But regardless of he format, it would be nice if there is a way to check a field for a value and depending on the criteria, you can set the return code in the job.

What do you consider to be "not numeric" for a ZD field?

What do you consider to be "not numeric" for a PD field?

Does the data set contain one record, or more than one record? If the data set contains more than one record, do you want to set a non-zero return code if any record has a "not numeric" value?

Hi Frank,

Here is the sample data:

Code:
----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+-
********************************* Top of Data ********************
HDRXXXX100XXXXXXXX20060821081912                                 
IRO   200606059999-1001       1026259        001828      000000003
IRO   200606059999-1001                      008247      000000000


There are 3 consecutive fields that should be numeric but they also contain spaces (which is considered valid).

@24 FIELD1 14(bytes)
@38 FIELD2 14(bytes)
@52 FIELD3 6(bytes)

These 3 fields need to be checked to see if they are numeric or not. Spaces is considered numeric in this instance. I could set zeroes into those fields by replacing all spaces with zeores and then check for numeric. But what I eventually want to do is, if any of those fields are not numeric, then I would like to set a return code 04 to the job to warn the user that there are non-numeric values in the fields.

So by numeric you mean a blank or a '0'-'9' in every byte?

And for the example shown, you would consider all of the values to be valid numeric and want a RC=0?

Please show an example of an input record where you would want a RC=4.

any other character other than space '0' thru '9' would be invalid.
I just added an 'X' in one of the fields for each record above...
Thanks

Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what I think you asked for. If any record has a non-numeric value in your specified fields, the ICETOOL step will pass back RC=4. Otherwise, it will pas back RC=0.

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(,PASS)
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN) USING(CTL1)
COUNT FROM(T1) NOTEMPTY RC4
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
* Change spaces to '0's.
  ALTSEQ CODE=(40F0)
  INREC OVERLAY=(24:24,34,TRAN=ALTSEQ)
* Include any record with non-numeric values.
  OUTFIL FNAMES=T1,INCLUDE=(24,34,FS,NE,NUM)
/*

Hi Frank,

I finally got around testing this, sorry for the delay... I ran it this morning and I got the following error (RC 16)

I looked up the error IEC602I & IEC200I, but cannot figure out the problem.

The above was the TOOLMSG log....

The DFSMSG log is:

Code:

The error message indicates you don't have DFSORT R14 PTF UK90006 (April, 2006) installed. You need the April, 2006 PTF to use NUM. Ask your System Programmer to install that PTF (it's free).

Thanks for the info... the problem is, I have no clue who that would be in this place...I will eventually figure out who, but good luck.
Thx!

yianis,

Try this alternative DFSORT/ICETOOL job that doesn't require the April, 2006 PTF:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(4,4)),DISP=(,PASS)
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN) USING(CTL1)
COUNT FROM(T1) NOTEMPTY RC4
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  ALTSEQ CODE=(40F0,F1F0,F2F0,F3F0,F4F0,F5F0,F6F0,
    F7F0,F8F0,F9F0)
  INREC OVERLAY=(24:24,34,TRAN=ALTSEQ)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=T1,INCLUDE=(24,34,ZD,NE,+0)
