COMPAREX is third party tool and has lot of features and various options.
SUPERC/CE is standard utility in ISPF with little options.

Most of the time 3rd party tools will provide advanced options which are not available in standard utilities.

Replacing COMPAREX with SUPERC/CE - This cannot be generalized and cannot be replaced. It really depends to what extent you are using COMPAREX, you may be able to do few tasks in Super C/CE when compared to COMPAREX.

Any specific reason of you thinking to replace COMPAREX with SUPER C/CE?

In a proc in one step comaprex utility is used to compare two datasets and check for duplicate records ,

if any duplicates are found they are written in new dataset.and

in comaprex utility step a control card is used which has key fileds for duplicate check and options MAXDIFF=5,PRINT=MISMATCH,COPYDIFF

.NOW COMPAREX is going to removed so

1.can we replace COMPAREX WITH SUPERC OR SUPERCE in PROC ?

2.CAN WE USE THE SAME CONTROL CARD ALONG WITH SUPERC OR SUPERCE ?.

3.WHAT COMMAND WE HAVE TO USE IT IN SUPERC OR SUPERCE FOR IT.

4.FINALLY IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY TO REPLACE COMAPREX WITH SUPERC OR SUPERCE

Considering your scenario of comparing datasets to get duplicates

According to me NO for your scenario of comparing datasets to get duplicate

2.CAN WE USE THE SAME CONTROL CARD ALONG WITH SUPERC OR SUPERCE ?.

NO - This control card is specific to COMPAREX

You need to see the online help and check whether this is possible.

If you just want to get duplicates in 2 datasets, then I would suggest to use SORT utility to compare and get duplicates.
