Hi,
Using ICETOOL I have sorted the duplicate records in a dataset.
Is there some logic to abend a job if I get duplicates in a dataset and should process further if dataset is empty ?


Thanks
Puneet

ABEND, I wannna ABEND. This is a very resource intensive methodology to attract attention.

What you want is a return code produced that your JCL statements can interrogate (cond or IF) and provide proper step execution sequence.

Puneet,

To get a different return code for an empty or non-empty data set, you can use the technique described in the "Set RC=12 or RC=4 if file is empty, has more than n records, etc" Smart DFSORT Trick at:
