Hi,

I want to combine the columns from the two files and generate a single output file. How can I do it through the JCL?

Ex: File A having col1, col2, col3, col4
File B having col5, col6, col7, col8

I need File C with the columns col1, col2, col3, col5, col6, col7

Thanks
U.H

This has been discussed so many times. Do search this forum for the keyword "SPLICE".

Try and post if you face any difficulty.

UH,

Depending on what you want to do exactly, you can use the technique shown in the "Join fields from two files on a key" or "Join fields from two files record-by-record" Smart DFSORT Trick at:
