Reply with quote

Hi , am in a process of converting a ezetrieve program to cobol program.
2 files are there file A and file B, both files are sorted out based on account number and other field.

Ezetrieve handels duplicate values, but to implement the same in cobol , what is the best way?
say for example IF no dup file A AND file B then proceed
another example if first dup file A then proceed.

what i did is - first i read File A and File B then i move the key varialbe to a temp-hold variable. then i compare file A and File B with these hold variables to check for any duplicates.

Please can any one help, if there is a better way of doing this.
Thanks,
Nagendra

Hello Nagendra and welcome to the forum,

At the top of the COBOl part of the forum is a "Sticky" that is working sample COBOL code that does a 2-file match/merge (which is what i believe you want).

Download the code, review it, and upload to your system. If there are any questions or problems, post the problem bit of code and your question about it. Someone will be able to clarify.

This topic will probably be moved to COBOL as it progresses.
