Hi,

I have a input file with the following layout

1-5 NAME X(5)
6-10 MARK1 9(5)
11-15 MARK2 9(5)

I need to extract only those records in which MARK1 > MARK2.

Is it possible using DFSORT?

Say,

My input file is

ANAME 00100 00101
BNAME 00200 00151
CNAME 00300 00121
DNAME 00400 00402
ENAME 00500 00101

My output file should look like


BNAME 00200 00151
CNAME 00300 00121
ENAME 00500 00101

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

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
   OPTION COPY
   INCLUDE COND=(6,5,ZD,GT,11,5,ZD)
/*


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:
