Hi,

I have 4 input files, which needs to be reformatted.
Is there any way of specifying a common control card which reformats all the input files and produce corresponding 4 output files?
I mean, a single step which uses a single control card which reformats 4 input files to 4 output files.

This is just for learning. is it possible to do so?
Your inputs will be valuable.

Thanks

Its possible with ICETOOL.

Sample JCL -

Code:
//SAMPSTEP EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//*
//IPFILE1 DD DSN=YOUR.FIRST.IPFILE,DISP=SHR   ASSUME LRECL=100
//OPFILE1 DD DSN=YOUR.FIRST.OPFILE,DISP=....,
//       LRECL=80,..........
//*
//IPFILE2 DD DSN=YOUR.SECOND.IPFILE,DISP=SHR   ASSUME LRECL=120
//OPFILE2 DD DSN=YOUR.SECOND.OPFILE,DISP=....,
//       LRECL=10,..........
//*
//TOOLIN DD *

** FOR FIRST FILE
     COPY FROM(IPFILE1) TO(OPFILE1) USING(FRST)
** SECOND FILE
     COPY FROM(IPFILE2) TO(OPFILE2) USING(SECN)
/*
//*
//FRSTCNTL  DD *
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,80)   * FIRST 80 BYTEST
/*
//SECNCNTL DD *
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,10)   * FIRST 10 BYTEST
/*
