Hi ALL,
I want to create an output file which contains a single record repeated n no of times. Also the record to be repeated is known.

eg. The output file should look like
This is a record
This is a record
This is a record
.
.
N no of times.

Can this be achieved by DFSORT or ICETOOL?

Have you looked at the REPEAT parameter, it can be used to repeat each output record a specified number of times.

Hi William,
Thanks for your reply.
Got the soln. Is there any better way to this ?
Code:

//ABCD   EXEC PGM=SORT                                       
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//SORTIN DD *                                               
                                                             
/*                                                           
//OUT1   DD DSN=Output file name
//SYSIN   DD *                                               
   OPTION COPY                                               
   OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT1,                                       
   REPEAT=10,                                               
        BUILD=(C'THIS IS MY RECORD')                         
/*

Better how? What's wrong with that way of doing it?

You could put a THIS IS MY RECORD record in SORTIN and just do REPEAT=10 without the BUILD but I'm not sure whether or why you would consider that a better way.
