Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*
//CON DD DSN=... input file1
//    DD DSN=... input file2
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file
//TOOLIN   DD    *
SELECT FROM(CON) TO(OUT) ON(1,3,CH) FIRSTDUP
/*

I think it would be better if we use
SELECT FROM(CON) TO(OUT) ON(1,3,CH) ALLDUPS

instead of

SELECT FROM(CON) TO(OUT) ON(1,3,CH) FIRSTDUP

Please correct me if i am wrong

Raam,

You're wrong and you could have corrected yourself if you had just tested what you proposed.

Siva2 stated that the output should be:

ddd

With FIRSTDUP, the output is:

ddd

as requested.

With ALLDUPS, the output is:

ddd
ddd

which is NOT as requested.

In the future, I'd suggest you test your solution before posting, especially if you're going to "correct" the person who "invented" the tool (ICETOOL) being used.
