I have an input file with some records whose fields are as follows

Code:

Empno     Empname     Salary     Designation
x(5)      x(10)       x(6)       x(10)


I want to get 3 output files, such that the output is
O/p file 1 : contains only empno
O/p file 2 : contains only empname
O/p file 3 : contains only salary and designation

hiteshkataria, since you're new, a few tips:

1. Not everyone speaks COBOL. It's better if you show us the actual data, and indicate to us what position a field starts in, what format it's in, and how many characters long it is.

2. You need to specify what the input dataset RECFM and LRECL is, and what you require for the output.

3. Do any of these fields need to be sorted into a specific order?

hiteshkataria,

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 (FB/31)
//OUT1 DD DSN=...  empno file (FB/5)
//OUT2 DD DSN=...  empname file (FB/10)
//OUT3 DD DSN=...  salary/designation file (FB/16)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT1,BUILD=(1,5)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT2,BUILD=(6,10)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT3,BUILD=(16,16)
