Hi all,

I have a field in a file which when has got a value of zero , needs to extract the value of the same field from a diffenent file.

Both the files have the same key.

Can anybody please suggest how to go thru it??
I tried doing it using sort. But it didnt work.

How about some examples of input1/input2/expected output?
How about your sort attempt and its results?

Hello,

What you need is a 2-file match/merge. There is a "Sticky" near the top of this COBOL section of the forum that contains sample cobol code to do what you need.

Download the sample, review it, and post any questions or problems here.
