Reply with quote

Hello,

I have seen the posts on counting lines of a FB file and writing the counts to a FB file. The JCL works perfect.

However when I have number of lines to be counted for a VB file the JCL gives an user abend of U0016.

The JCL I have used is as :

Code:

//RUN EXEC PGM=ICEMAN                                       
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                       
//SORTIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=Z930028.VB.OUT                     
//SORTOUT DD DSN=Z930028.NAMEXREC,                         
//           DISP=MOD                                       
//SYSIN DD *                                               
  OPTION COPY                                               
  OUTFIL NODETAIL,REMOVECC,                                 
  TRAILER1=('OUTPUT NUMBER OF ROWS : ',COUNT=(M10,LENGTH=9))
/*     


The Z930028.VB.OUT is a B file and Z930028.NAMEXREC is an FB file of LRECL of 80.
I tried using the VTOF, but still the job abended with U0016.

Can any one help me out as what am I doing wrong.

Thanks.

Sudhir

Well, my system is down right now so I can't test it, but I think these DFSORT control statements will give you what you want:

Code:

  OPTION COPY                                               
  OUTFIL NODETAIL,REMOVECC,                                 
    VTOF,BUILD=(80X),
    TRAILER1=('OUTPUT NUMBER OF ROWS : ',COUNT=(M10,LENGTH=9))

Ha ha. Of course you know that it was just one of IBM's many, many, many systems ... unfortunately, it was the one I use. It came back up just as I was leaving for the day. I just tested my job and it works fine.
