Hi,
My input file contains 6 columns.I need to copy only the 3rd and the 6th column from the input file to the output file using File-aid ISPF panel.Also give me the syntax to accomplish this using File-aid batch.

Eg:

Input File:
C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 C6

Output File:
C3 C6

Thanks
Aneeta

Hello,

Is there some business reason to use file-aid or is this a training exercise?

Hello,

I understand and agree with automating this type of requirement.

If this were my requirement, i would most likely use my sort product, rather than file-aid.
