Reply with quote

Hi,

I need some hep with the sorting.
I have a FB file -

ABCD,+1111
ABCD,b+111
ABCD,bb+11
ABCD,bbb+1

note: where 'b' is spaces.
Now my concern is how to convert it to

ABCD,+1111
ABCD,+111
ABCD,+11
ABCD,+1

i.e. to remove the spaces from the middle of the input file and shifting the rest of data to left.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Abhijat ,

Use the topic Squeeze out blanks or other characters from the sorttrck.pdf. You can download pdf from -

Hi,

When i tried to use the following JCL for the same problem as stated in previous messages, it is returning me a RC=20

Code:

//STEP1    EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//SORTIN   DD DSN=CHANGE.FILE1,DISP=SHR         
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=CHANGE.FILEOUT2,             
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                 
//            UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,1),RLSE),       
//            DCB=(LRECL=50,BLKSIZE=500,RECFM=FB)       
//SYSIN    DD *                                         
  OPTION COPY                                           
  INREC BUILD=(1,10,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT))                   
/*                                                     


I am stuck up with this error and it is not giving me any other error messeges as well.

Please help.
Thank you,

When I ran your job with DFSORT, it gave RC=0.

RC=20 means that it isn't finding your message data set. Since you have a //SYSOUT DD statement, I don't see how that could happen with DFSORT.

Please show me the JES messages from the run.

Note: This has nothing to do with the RC, but I thought I'd mention it. You are building a 10-byte record with the INREC statement, but you have LRECL=50 for SORTOUT. This will cause DFSORT to pad with binary zeros from positions 11-50. Not sure if that's what you actually want.

Hi Frank,

There is a limitation here that if i mention PGM=DFSORT, there is no such program found. (However we use mostly ICEMAN/SYNCSORT for our purposes. Does this SQZ work only with DFSORT?)

Now based on your message below, it triggered couple of doubts
1)
Quote:
"RC=20 means that it isn't finding your message data set."

What is the meaning of MESSAGE data set? Is is anything different from the PS mentioned in my JCL?

2)
Quote:
This will cause DFSORT to pad with binary zeros from positions 11-50.

As mentioned earlier, I have data till the first 10 bytes only. Will the rest data be padded with zeros only and not by blanks? If so then how to prevent it?

Following are the JES messages:

PGM=DFSORT is not supported by DFSORT or any other sort program. PGM=ICEMAN or PGM=SORT invokes the sort product at your site which could be DFSORT, Syncsort or Ca-Sort. In the JES messages, I see:

Quote:
12.02.39 JOB09644 +BCBS999I A151XP9A 1 STEP SYNCTOOL 020


which indicates you're using Syncsort, not DFSORT.

Quote:

The SQZ function is supported by DFSORT. The SQZ function is NOT supported by Syncsort.

Quote:

For PGM=ICEMAN (as shown in your first post), //SYSOUT is the message data set. But your JES messages indicate you're using SYNCTOOL which means you really used PGM=SYNCTOOL, not PGM=ICEMAN and in that case the message data sets are //TOOLMSG and //DFSMSG. Go back and look at your JCL - it appears that what you ran to get these JES messages is not the job you showed in your first post.

Quote:
As mentioned earlier, I have data till the first 10 bytes only. Will the rest data be padded with zeros only and not by blanks? If so then how to prevent it?


By default, the padding will be with binary zeros. If you want blanks, you could use:

Code:

     INREC BUILD=(1,10,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT),50:X)                   


But, of course, that will only work with DFSORT, not Syncsort.

All of that being said, I'm a DFSORT developer. DFSORT and Syncsort are competitive products. I'm happy to answer questions on DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, but I don't answer questions on Syncsort.

And since you're using Syncsort, not DFSORT, I'm moving this thread to the JCL Forum. Please post future Syncsort questions there. This Forum is for DFSORT questions.

Hi Frank,

It seems like I really messed up the Spool messages last time (where i tried Syncsort)

So i am here again posting my JCL and JES messages which i ran using ICETOOL.

JCL
Code:
//A151XP9A JOB (9999999,D,9999999),'AB',MSGLEVEL=(1,1),

As per your earlier advice, ICETOOL should give the results now?

Hello,

Please post the output from the step itself. You have posted the jcl and 2 of the jes sysout datasets, but you didn't post the output from the step execution.

Hi,

There are only 3 steps that got created in Spool. They are as shown below:
Code:
SDSF JOB DATA SET DISPLAY - JOB A151XP9A (JOB00513)    LINE 1-3 (3)           
COMMAND INPUT ===>                                            SCROLL ===> CSR
NP   DDNAME   StepName ProcStep DSID Owner    C Dest               Rec-Cnt Page
     JESMSGLG JES2                 2 A151XP9  S LOCAL                   19     
     JESJCL   JES2                 3 A151XP9  S LOCAL                   12     
     JESYSMSG JES2                 4 A151XP9  S LOCAL                   18     


The 2nd one - JESJCL only has my original JCL. There was no other output message created. If a snapshot of JESJCL is needed please let me know.

There is no where that I am getting any other error message for it.

Thank you,

Hi,

I am sorry, I forgot to mention that this JCL is still returning me RC=20 as mentioned above. (In case the message chain is not followed from the beginning). The output Dataset is empty.

Thank you,

Abhijat,

You have mixed up ICETOOL and ICEMAN JCL. You have PGM=ICETOOL which means you're invoking ICETOOL, but the rest of your JCL is for ICEMAN, not ICETOOL. The reason you got RC=20 is that ICETOOL requires //TOOLMSG and //DFSMSG for its messages and you don't have those.

Just change from PGM=ICETOOL to PGM=ICEMAN so you're using ICEMAN and the rest of your JCL will be ok.

Why is it still telling me that I am using SYNCSORT in my SYSOUT?
I am really getting desperate now to get this to work.

Thank you,

Hello,

You are seeing "SYNCxxx" info because your "sort" is Syncsort.

The WERxxxx messages are another way to recognize Syncsort.

You might ask your system support people if both sort products are available on your system (not typical, but does happen sometimes).

Your current error is because the SQZ function is not available with SYNCxxx.

The reason you see this is because when you specify ICEMAN, your system actually invokes the Syncsort module (SYNCTOOL, i believe).

Hi,

I too think it is the same issue as I tried loads of combinations here.
I shall check it out with the systm people. I was guessing if there might be an issue with the version of the Tool also, as I heard SQZ is a recent enough utility.

However, does anyone has any idea how to achieve my original problem WITHOUT DFSORT as I am now not able to invoke it. How do I squeeze the spaces from my input file(In my case aligning all the data to left will also work perfectly)? Maybe some roundabout to achieve the same effect?

Thank you,

Hello,

You might write a bit of code to accomplish the manipulation - any programming language should be ok for what you need.

I told you several posts ago that only DFSORT supports SQZ and that you are using Syncsort, not DFSORT. DFSORT has had SQZ available since April, 2006. Syncsort does NOT have it.

It is possible (though not probable) that your site has both Syncsort and DFSORT. If so, then since Syncsort is your primary sort product, DFSORT would be your secondary sort product and the only way to get to DFSORT would be to JOBLIB or STEPLIB to the libraries where your System Programmers installed it. Only they would know which libraries those were.
