Reply with quote

Hi,

I have a requirement to split the records in the file into different segments as like below.

File1:
Code:
 ABCDEFGHIJJLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ


File1 Contains records as above. I need to extract only the first 20 characters in the file1 records and split it into sets of 2 character records each into file2.

Example:

File2:
Code:

AB
CD
EF
GH
IJ
KL
MN
OP
QR
ST


The last 6 characters of the record in the file1 should be ignored.

Thanks,
Dinesh

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/2)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL BUILD=(1,2,/,3,2,/,5,2,/,7,2,/,9,2,/,
      11,2,/,13,2,/,15,2,/,17,2,/,19,2)
