Here we have to copy the records of file2 in file1 but before that we have to remove first and last record of file2 and also we have to copy before the last record of file1.

You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT   DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
1aaaaa
2bbbbb
4ddddd
6ccccc
9zzzzzzzz
1ssssss
3wwww
5rrrrrr
7fffffffff
9andnnnn
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
  OPTION EQUALS
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:C'2',SEQNUM,8,ZD)),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,1,SS,EQ,C'19'),OVERLAY=(81:1,1,82:8C'0'))
  SORT FIELDS=(81,9,ZD,A)
  SUM FIELDS=NONE
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
