Anand,

DFSORT OUTFIL statement is helpful to you. Search the forum for examples.

Adding to murali's post, use SPLIT1R\SPLIT for your requirement.

The commands are well explained in the DFSORT sort tricks.

Note: The original Subject was "Splitting files using DFSORT" - it was changed to "Splitting files using Syncsort" when it was discovered later that Syncsort was actually being used.

Anand,

Assuming you want the first three records in output file1, the second three records in output file2 and the first record from each group of three in output file3, you can use a DFSORT job like this:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                     
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                     
//SORTIN DD *                                 
1                                             
2                                             
3                                             
4                                             
5                                             
6
/*                                           
//OUT1 DD SYSOUT=*                           
//OUT2 DD SYSOUT=*                           
//OUT3 DD SYSOUT=*                           
//SYSIN    DD    *                           
  OPTION COPY                                 
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2),SPLIT1R=3         
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT3,SAMPLE=3                 
/*


If that's not what you want, then please explain clearly the rules you want to use to go from input to output.

Frank,

The sort card to split files is not working for out1 and out2 files. As all records are copied into out1 & out2 files(means not splitted).

I apologize for miscommunication.

I don't understand. When I run the job I gave you, I get the following output:

OUT1
1
2
3

OUT2
4
5
6

OUT3
1
4

If that's not what you're getting, then you're doing something different.

Please show the input you're using, the output you're getting and the //SYSOUT messages for your job.

Hi Frank

I tried above Jcl. But it gave me syntax error as below

Code:
SYSIN :                                             
  OPTION COPY                                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2),SPLIT1R=3               
                            *                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT3,SAMPLE=3                       
WER268A  OUTFIL STATEMENT  : SYNTAX ERROR           
WER211B  SYNCSMF  CALLED BY SYNCSORT; RC=0000       
WER449I  SYNCSORT GLOBAL DSM SUBSYSTEM ACTIVE       


Since we Synsort, Is this the reason that i got this message ? (I Apologize if this post was not supposed to be posted in DFSORT)

Yes. The job works fine with DFSORT which has supported SPLIT1R since April, 2006. Syncsort does not support SPLIT1R so you can't use it with Syncsort.

Hi !

While using Syncsort, you could do this with the OUTFILE option.
Example: Splitting by using Outfile with Include statement.

//SORTOF1 DD DSN=FRANK.MARTINS.OUTPUT01
//SORTOF2 DD DSN=FRANK.MARTINS.OUTPUT02

//SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=COPY
RECORD TYPE=F
OUTFIL FILES=1,
INCLUDE=(66,03,BI,NE,X'00000C'),
INCLUDE=(66,03,ZD,GT,+0),
OUTREC=(050,010,066,003)
OUTFIL FILES=2,
INCLUDE=(66,03,BI,EQ,X'00000C'),
OUTREC=(050,010,066,003)
/*


Regards, UmeySan

Hi UmeySan,

Please explain me, as I am able to see only two split files, where is the third file which is expected to contain first record of each group.

Anand78,

Instead of using SPLIT1R use SPLITBY. SPLITBY is available in SYNCSORT
Code:
SPLIT1R:
  OPTION COPY                                 
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2),SPLIT1R=3         
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT3,SAMPLE=3
The above code will work as follows.
It will put the first three records from input file to OUT1 and then remaining records to OUT2.

Code:
SPLITBY:
  OPTION COPY                                 
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2),SPLITBY=3         
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT3,SAMPLE=3
The above code will work as follows.
It will put the first three records from input file to out1 and then
next three records to OUT2 and then
next three records to OUT1 and then
next three records to OUT2 and then
......

For the record, there's an important difference between SPLIT1R=n and SPLITBY=n. SPLIT1R=n does NOT rotate back to the first output file so you get contiguous records in each output file, whereas SPLITBY=n rotates back so you can get non-contiguous records in a file.

To illustrate the difference, if you had 8 input records, SPLIT1R=3,FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2) would put records 1-3 in OUT1 and 4-8 in OUT2. whereas SPLITBY=3,FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2) would put records 1-3 and 7-8 in OUT1 and 4-6 in OUT2.

With 6 records as specified by the OP that wouldn't make a difference. But it can make a difference in other situations.

USE THE FOLOWING JCL

Code:
//JOB STATEMNT

//STEP01 EXEC PGM=SORT

//SORTIN DD DSN=INPUT.FILE.NAME,DISP=SHR

//SORTOF1 DD DSN=OUPUT.FILE1

//SORTOF2 DD DSN=OUPUT.FILE2

//SORTOF03 DD DSN=OUPUT.FILE3

//SYSIN DD *

      SORT FIELDS=COPY
       OUFILE FILEDS = SORTOF1, INCLUDE COND=(1.1,CH,LT,C'4')
       OUFILE FILEDS = SORTOF2, INCLUDE COND=(1.1,CH,GT,C'3')
       OUFILE FILEDS = SORTOF3, INCLUDE COND=(1.1,CH,EQ,C'1') AND
                                INCLUDE COND=(1,1,CH,EQ,C'4')
/*
