IF there is FILEAID utility in your Shop, Try this JCL:

//**
//STEP010 EXEC PGM=FILEAID
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSLIST DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTOTAL DD SYSOUT=*
//DD03 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XXX.XXXX.XXXX
//SYSIN DD *
$$DD03 UPDATE ME=9999,
EA=(1,0,T"TAX",C"TAX1")
/*

You can now use DFSORT's new FINDREP function available with z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90013 (July, 2008) to do this kind of thing quite easily like this:


Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                                         
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                                         
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file                                                   
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file   
//SYSIN    DD    *                                               
  OPTION COPY                                                   
  INREC FINDREP=(IN=C'AA',OUT=C'BB')                               
/*


For complete details on the new FINDREP function and the other new functions available with PTF UK90013, see:
