Hi Freinds,

I have a requirement where in I have to set the RETURN-CODE in JCL based on some condition as given below.

IF the column 4-6 in the file is GU00059.TEST.FILE3 equal to = 134
SET MAXCC = 0
ELSE SET MAXCC = 4


Is there any way we can meet this requirement ?

For only one record ?

Look at REXX or possibly SORT or COBOl or any other program language solutions.

Dinesh,

You can use the below syncsort job for one record..
Code:
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='NULLOUT=RC4'
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                     
//SORTIN   DD *                           
XXX134YYY                                 
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                     
//SYSIN    DD *                           
 OPTION COPY                               
 INCLUDE COND=(4,3,CH,EQ,C'134')           

Thanks,
Arun

If there are no records in the SORTOUT dataset, then the step will issue RC4, but if there are records RC0
