Hi,
I have a requirement to use SELCOPY and split the output file such that the output is split between the three output files. For example if I have 31000 records in my input file, it should be split in this fashion.
First 10000 goes to output file 1
second 10000 goes to output file 2
remaining 11000 goes to output file 3.
I know the syntax in DFSORT, but not sure about SELCOPY.

you can use the INCOUNT field to interrogate the record number of the last record read from the prime input file. SELCOPY syntax to match your spec follows...

Code:
READ INDD     * Read the next input record.

IF INCOUNT < 10001   * Record numbers up to 10000.
  THEN WRITE OUTDD1   
  THEN GOTO GET      * Back to the first control statement.

* Record numbers > 10000 processed from here on.
IF INCOUNT < 20001   * Record numbers up to 20000.
  THEN WRITE OUTDD2
  ELSE WRITE OUTDD3  * All record numbers over 20000.

* SELCOPY automatically loops back to the first control statement.
* Processing ends when prime input (INDD) end-of-file is reached.
