Hi,
I have a requirement where in i have to merge 3 files by stripping out their header and trailer records and add a new header and trailer where the header would contain the file version and the trailer would contain the record count with including the header and trailer.

Pls let me know how to do this using DFSORT.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Pasha,

What is the RECFM and LRECL of each input file?

Please show an example of the records in each input file and the records you expect for output.

Hi Frank,
RECFM = FB
LRECL = 133

All the 3 files follow the same format.

William,
That pdf is of great help, I have just begun to go thru it.

Thank you all for the help

Regards,
Pasha

I asked you to "Please show an example of the records in each input file and the records you expect for output.". Saying that all 3 files follow th same format doesn't satisfy that request. If you want specific help with this, please provide what I requested.

I'm glad it's helpful - I wrote it.
