hernikiten,

If you want to keep just the duplicate records, you can use a DFSORT/ICETOOL job like this. I assumed your "key" is in positions 11-15, but you can change the job as needed.

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(11,5,CH) ALLDUPS           
/*                                                   


For complete information on all of the ways you can handle duplicate and non-duplicate records with the SELECT operator of DFSORT's ICETOOL,
