Reply with quote

Hi All,

My requirement is,
Input: I have ?N? number of records in a file. (N>6)

Desired output:
File1: first N/6 records
File2: next N/6 records
File3: next N/6 records
File4: next N/6 records
File5: next N/6 records
File6: left over records?

Above condition needs to be done using sort,

SORT with OUTFIL option will not serve my purpose, as it wud divide first 6 records into 6 different files.

Please provide me pointers for the above kind of situation.

Take a look at the 'Split a file to n output files dynamically' Smart DFSORT Trick at:

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

I think it's what you are looking for
