I have an input file having first name a space followed by the last name. The max combined length is 20 char. I need to pull up the first name and store it separately to a 2nd file and extract the last name and store it separately to a 3rd file. How do I do that using a JCL/SORT?

Can you post here the sort product info.(DFSORT/Syncsort) with the version nbr. See the SYSOUT of any job run to find this info.

Kushal,

You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
ALFRED SMITH
WILLIAM JONES
JOE PLUMBER
GEORGE WASHINGTON
/*
//OUT1 DD SYSOUT=*
//OUT2 DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT1,
    PARSE=(%01=(ENDBEFR=C' ',FIXLEN=20)),
    BUILD=(%01)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT2,
    PARSE=(%=(ENDBEFR=C' '),
           %02=(FIXLEN=20)),
    BUILD=(%02)
/*


OUT1 would have:

Code:

ALFRED   
WILLIAM   
JOE       
GEORGE   


OUT2 would have:

Code:

SMITH       
JONES       
PLUMBER     
WASHINGTON 


For complete details of DFSORT's PARSE function, see:
