Hi,

I am using SORT to write different output files depending upon condition using OPTION COPY and checking condition. I want to set the return code to 4 if the input file is empty. Can u tell me how to do it ?

now my code is looking like,

Code:

//STEP005 EXEC SORTD
//SORTIN DD DSN=TES.AG55032A.SQ.P56350.LAPS.IN.T04.D120606,DISP=SHR
//FILEB DD DSN=TES.AG55032A.SQ.P56560.TEMPA.CE.T04X.D120606,
//  DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5))
//SYSIN    DD  *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL FNAMES=FILEB,OMIT=(58,1,CH,NE,C'5',AND,
                           58,1,CH,NE,C'6',OR,
                           59,9,CH,NE,C'K00161880')

You can use
Code:
COUNT FROM(SORTIN) EMPTY RC4
to set the Return Code to 4.

Please refer the "DFSORT Application Programming Guide" for more information on this.

Amit,

If you have z/OS DFSORT V1R5, you can use the NULLOFL=RC4 parameter to set RC=4 if the output file is empty (in one pass):

Code:

  OPTION COPY                           
  OUTFIL FNAMES=FILEB,NULLOFL=RC4,     
     OMIT=(58,1,CH,NE,C'5',AND,         
           58,1,CH,NE,C'6',OR,         
           59,9,CH,NE,C'K00161880')     



If you have DFSORT R14, then you'll need to use COUNT in a second pass.
