I want to combine the data of file1 which is a FB and data of file2 which is VB into a file FILE3 which is VB similar to FILE2.

Code:

//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SYNCSORT
//SORTIN    DD DSN=FILE1,DISP=SHR
//               DD DSN=FILE2,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=FILE3,DISP=OLD         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSIN      DD *                                   
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                 
//*                                               


i tried the above code, but i am getting abend.can you please guide.

Hello,

You need to post the entire diagnostic output.

You will probably need to copy the fb data to vb and then combine the vb files.

I donno if it is possible with syncsort..

You need to add a step to copy FB file(file1) into a temporary VB file using IEBGENER.

Code:

//STEP1     EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                       
//SYSIN     DD DUMMY                               
//SYSUT1   DD DSN=TEST.INPUT.FB.FILE1,         
//              DISP=SHR                               
//SYSUT2   DD DSN=TEST.OUTPUT.VB.TEMP,         
//              DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),               
//              SPACE=(CYL,(1,1),RLSE),               
//              DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=84,BLKSIZE=6720)   
//SYSPRINT  DD SYSOUT=*


In second step you can use sort to combine the two files (tempfile and FILE2) into FILE3 [/code]

Both files need to be of the same format, either FB or VB.

Use SORT to convert the FB into VB, and then merge the files.
