You have 3 common records in both the files.....but you want two of them in output file....Is there any specific need for your output....If yes, please mention.

Or you skipped 0004 of FILE1 from output because it lies before 0002 & 0003 in FILE2....Is it like that.....Please make it clear....

Regards,

Priyesh.

Hi karthikuma,

There should be a logic before writing any algorithm....I mean to say, you need to be clear on what basis you want to process data.....Still, If you are sure about your input & output structure....You can use below code.... It'll give you desired output....

I assumed requirement for this code as below....

Quote:
Write rec from FILE1 which are there in FILE2, but in FILE2 If they are before their predeccessor of FILE1, SKIP Them.


Code:
OPEN all the THREE Files & INITIALIZE STRUCTURE.   

PERFORM PROCESSING                 
   THRU PROC-EXIT UNTIL END-INFILE-YES.

STOP RUN.

PROCESSING
MOVE ZEROES TO COUNTER.                       
CLOSE ITEM-WSFILE.                             
READ INFILE INTO WS-IN-REC               
            AT END SET END-INFILE-YES TO TRUE 
                    GO TO P2000-EXIT           
END-READ.                                     
                                             
OPEN INPUT WSFILE.                       
SET END-WSFILE-NO TO TRUE.                     
PERFORM MATCH THRU MATCH-EXIT                 
             UNTIL END-WSFILE-YES.             
PROC-EXIT.

MATCH
READ WSFILE INTO WS-REC                   
            AT END SET END-WSFILE-YES TO TRUE     
                    GO TO MATCH-EXIT             
END-READ.                                         
                   
ADD 1 TO COUNTER.                                 
IF COUNTER <= WS-COUNTER                         
    GO TO MATCH-EXIT.                             
                                                 
IF IN-REC = WS-REC                         
   MOVE COUNTER TO WS-COUNTER                     
   MOVE IN-REC TO OUT-REC                   
   DISPLAY 'RECORD WRITTEN : ' OUT-REC         
    WRITE ITEM-OUTREC FROM WS-OUT-REC.
    MOVE SPACES TO WS-OUT-REC.       
   MOVE SPACES TO WS-WS-REC. 
   GO TO PROC-EXIT                               
   CLOSE WSFILE                             
END-IF.                                           
MATCH-EXIT.


Let me know, If any doubt on this.

Regards,

Priyesh.

Come on, Karthi. You have to give this a try on your own. Show us what you've done in trying to solve it.

Getting the ans to interview ques will not make you a pgmr, but expending the effort on your own to solve problems will.

You may not solve the problem, but the effort you invest WILL make you a pgmr.

We're here to help, not to do the work for you.
