The requirement is, I have two files and I have to find the unmatched records based on a key value. The key value is in different format in the input files. File1 has the key value in Binary format and file 2 has the key value in the ZD format. I already tried sorting with Joinkeys but it didn't work since the key is in different format. Is there a way to find the unmatched records?

Are you using SYNCSORT??

If you are using DFSORT, first convert and make the data formats same and then use SELECT operator to get the unmatched records.

elangovalan,

In a prior step, you can convert the JOINKEYS FIELD in the smaller file so they match, and then run the JOIN application.

Regards,
