Hi,
I have a requirement. I need to select all the records from the input file which have a perticular string in it. That perticular string can be at any place in the record.

Input
Code:

ABCDNYPQRSTU
12HGPSTMNY78
ABCDEFGHIJKL
MYNAMEISVINA
I#LIVE$IN$NY


Output
Code:

ABCDNYPQRSTU
12HGPSTMNY78
I#LIVE$IN$NY


Here i have selected all the record having NY any where in the input.

Thanks.

You can use a DFSORT job like this. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INCLUDE COND=(1,80,SS,EQ,C'NY')
/*


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:
