Hi,

An input file has only two records.

Code:

COUNT-1 IS: 45
COUNT-2 IS: 10326


How to create a single record out of it as below:

Code:

COUNT-1 IS: 45 COUNT-2 IS: 10326


Please suggest.

Thanks.

ramsri,

What's the input/output RECFM/LRECL. Also the maximum possible length of the numeric field?

Hi,

The input file RECFM=FB and LRECL is 80. Its max possible length is 11 digits.

Thanks.

You can use a DFSORT/ICETOOL job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN DD *
COUNT-1 IS: 45
COUNT-2 IS: 10326
/*
//OUT DD SYSOUT=*
//TOOLIN DD *
SPLICE FROM(IN) TO(OUT) ON(8,1,CH) WITH(16,17) USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(6,2,CH,EQ,C'-2'),BUILD=(16:1,17,80:X))
/*

Code:
----+----+----+----+----+
COUNT-1 IS: 12345678901
COUNT-2 IS: 12345678901

ramsri,

As the numeric field length is 11, you might want to modify the control cards as below.
Code:
//TOOLIN DD *
  SPLICE FROM(IN) TO(OUT) ON(8,1,CH) WITH(25,23) USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(6,2,CH,EQ,C'-2'),BUILD=(25:1,23,80:X))
/*

I was apparently working on my solution while ramsri was posting about the 11 digits and didn't see that post until now. (I hate when that happens.)
