Hi

I having a file of 1ength 220 .My Input file is as like below

123         657
123         456
321         234
321         435
143         222
567         888


And i want my output file as

Code:

field1      field2
123         657
321         435
143         222

ie , first i want to sort field1 and if field1 has duplicates i want to elimate records based on the field 2 value ie, i want the record which has highest value in field2

can u suggest a way for doing this???

Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file
//TOOLIN DD *
SELECT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) ON(1,3,ZD) FIRST USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,3,ZD,A,13,3,ZD,D)
/*
