Hi,

I have 2 files

File1 has records as

Code:

A
B
C
D
I
J
K
L


File2 has records as

Code:

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
H


Two output files should be produced.

Output file1 should have records that are in the first file but not in the second file.

Output file 2 should have records that are in the second file but not in the first file.

The records that are commonly present in both the files should be eliminated from the output files.

So the output file1 should look as

Code:

I
J
K
L



Output file 2 should look as

Code:

E
F
G
H



Please let me know a solution for this requirement.

Thanks,
Dinesh

Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your input files have RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN1 DD DSN=... input file1 (FB/80)
//IN2 DD DSN=... input file2 (FB/80)
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)
//OUT1 DD DSN=... output file1 (FB/80)
//OUT2 DD DSN=... output file2 (FB/80)
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN1) TO(T1) USING(CTL1)
COPY FROM(IN2) TO(T1) USING(CTL2)
SELECT FROM(T1) TO(OUT1) ON(1,1,CH) NODUPS USING(CTL3)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INREC OVERLAY=(81:C'1')
/*
//CTL2CNTL DD *
  INREC OVERLAY=(81:C'2')
/*
//CTL3CNTL DD *
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT1,INCLUDE=(81,1,CH,EQ,C'1'),BUILD=(1,80)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT2,SAVE,BUILD=(1,80)
/*
