Hi,
My control card has 2 lines


LOAD DATA LOG NO INDDN SYSREC00 INTO TABLE
ST01.ST_RULES_TABLE

My requirement is to change it to

LOAD DATA LOG NO INDDN SYSREC00 NOCOPYPEND INTO TABLE
GT21.ST_RULES_TABLE

Thus I need to add some data in line 1 and need to update some data from line2. Can you suggest how can this be accomplished? Is it possible thru Syncsort or dfsort?

I'm curious if there's a reason why the two lines of data can't just be edited?

Have you looked at the IFTHEN clause in the OUTREC/OUTFIL statements?

If this is a repeated task, you might want to consider an ISPF Edit Macro.

I have thousands of the control cards and I was thinking to update them thru a JCL rather than manually.

Do you want to change all members of a PDS in the same way? If so FileAid is a good product to use, if you have it.

shresyam,

If all the 1000 control cards are to be changed in the same way then you can go for Fileaid change option rathen than going for SORT.

shreyasm,

I suspect you haven't described your complete requirement here, but you can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you did ask for.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
LOAD DATA LOG NO INDDN SYSREC00 INTO TABLE
ST01.ST_RULES_TABLE
/*
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFOUTLEN=80,
   IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,4,CH,EQ,C'LOAD'),
     BUILD=(1,32,C'NOCOPYPEND ',33,10)),
   IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,OVERLAY=(1:C'GT21'))
/*

Are you sure there are thousands of control cards? For DB2 there would be one set of control cards for an input file, not one set for each input record record.
