Reply with quote

Hi,

I am trying to write a sort card that will add trailer record to a file. I have to put the job name in the trailer. As of now I am hard coding but I wanted to know if there is a way in DFSORT/ICETOOL to fetch the job name that is currently executing and print it in the file as a part of the trailer. Do we have a keyword or function that will fetch the job name?

Thanks

rarvins,

You can use the following DFSORT JCL which will give you the desired results

Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN               
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                   
//SYMNAMES DD *                         
CURRJOB,S'&JOBNAME'                     
//SORTIN   DD *                         
ABC                                     
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                   
//SYSIN    DD *                         
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                       
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,                       
  TRAILER1=('THE JOBNAME IS : ',CURRJOB)
/*
