Hi,

I do have PS file with 100 records. I want to delete 6th & 55th record from this file. The file has not any key on which you can delete the record. Is it possible by using sort only? I can do it by using program, by count & excluding 6th & 55th record. But sort is fast & coding program will take some time.



Thanks,

Vikas.

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:
// EXEC PGM=SORT
//SORTIN DD ...                                             
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SYSIN DD *                                             
 OPTION COPY                                             
 INREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)                           
 OUTFIL OMIT=(81,8,ZD,EQ,6,OR,81,8,ZD,EQ,55),BUILD=(1,80)
/*                                                       
//

Vikas,

Note that Shankar's job assumes that your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80. The job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

With z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90013 (July, 2008) you can use DFSORT's new SUBSET operator to do this kind of thing quite easily like this:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file
//TOOLIN DD *
SUBSET FROM(IN) TO(OUT) REMOVE INPUT RRN(6) RRN(55)
/*


This will work for data sets with any attributes.

For complete details on the new SUBSET function and the other new functions available with PTF UK90013, see:
