I need to create a new file with columns from different file.
ie i have a file FILE1 with the 4 fields 'Name', 'address', 'phone' and 'balance'
i need to make a new file FILE2 with the fileds 'name' and 'balance' from FILE1 and alos another filed 'sex' from working storage.

Can i achieve the same using any JCL utilities or do i have to write a cobol prog for that

Please post samples of what your inputs look like and how you expect your outputs to look.

You can do this with DFSORT. What is the starting position, length and format of 'name' and 'balance' fields in the input record? What is the RECFM and LRECL of the input file?

      05 FS-BALDATE            PIC X(08).
      05 FS-STORE              PIC X(04).
      05 FS-DOLSIGN            PIC X(01).
      05 FS-DOL.
         10 FS-DOL1            PIC 9(3).
         10 FS-DOL2            PIC 9(14)V9(04).

AND THE WORKING STORAGE VARIABLE
01 WS-SALESIGN PIC X(01).

AND OUT PUT SHOULD HAVE

Looks like you want to do it with COBOL.......
If WS-SALESIGN is somewhat constant, Sort could do it quite easily.....
Did I get the displacements and lengths correct?
16,08 05 FS-BALDATE PIC X(08).
24,04 05 FS-STORE PIC X(04).
62,08 05 FS-TRANDATE PIC X(08).
70,04 05 FS-REGID PIC X(04).
87,01 05 FS-TRANTYPE PIC X(01).
Did I get the lrecl correct?
lrecl 136
And what value should single byte of WS-SALESIGN be?
AND OUT PUT SHOULD HAVE
FS-BALDATE
FS-TRANDATE
FS-STORE
FS-REGID
FS-TRANTYPE
WS-SALESIGN

nithinlenin,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I didn't know what WS-SALESIGN was, so I assumed it was a constant of 'A'. Change it appropriately.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYMNAMES DD *
FS-RECTYPE2,1,5
FS-SEQ,*,10
FS-BALDATE,*,8
FS-STORE,*,4
FS-DOLSIGN,*,1
FS-DOL1,*,3
FS-DOL2,*,18
FS-QTYSIGN,*,1
FS-QTY,*,12
FS-TRANDATE,*,8
FS-REGID,*,4
FS-TRANNO,*,4
FS-VERNO,*,4
FS-REV,*,1
FS-ITEMSEQ,*,4
FS-TRANTYPE,*,1
WS-SALESIGN,'A'
/*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTREC BUILD=(FS-BALDATE,FS-TRANDATE,FS-STORE,
    FS-REGID,FS-TRANTYPE,WS-SALESIGN)
/*

Way back in Sept, 1998.

You can look up when any DFSORT function was first available in my paper at:
