For the example you show, you can use this DFSORT/ICETOOL job. But if there are other variations (e.g. records in file2 that are not in file1), the job might have to be modified depending on what you want for output. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80 and the "key" was in positions 1-7 - again, the job can be modified as appropriate.
If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
