Reply with quote

I have one input file of length 80 (fixed Length).
Now I want split all the records in input file into 4 output file(FB, lenghth=80). But condition for splitting records is:
1st four records should go to 1st o/p file then 5-8 records should goto 2nd o/p file, 9-12 records should go to 3rd o/p file, 13-16 records should goto 4th o/p file and so on till i/p file EOF.
For e.g
I/p file have following records:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19

Now O/p file 1 should contain:
1
2
3
4
17
18
19
O/p file 2 should contain:
5
6
7
8
O/p file 3 should contain:
9
10
11
12
O/p file 4 should contain:
13
14
15
16

Can it be done using simple SORT or ICETOOL.

Thanks,
Sameer

Sameer,

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

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=... input file
//OUT1 DD DSN=...  outpuf file1
//OUT2 DD DSN=...  outpuf file2
//OUT3 DD DSN=...  outpuf file3
//OUT4 DD DSN=...  outpuf file4
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2,OUT3,OUT4),SPLITBY=4
