Hi, I just had a situation where I want to split the Variable Blocked file based on the length of records. I want to know if this is possible using ICETOOL. If yes, how?

Variable blocked file has records of length 50 and 100 only. I want to have two different files - one with having records only of length 50 and another having records only of length 100.

Bytes 1 and 2 of the RDW contain the length of the record. You can use this to include the records into seperate files. For example the code below will only copy records of 51 bytes length, or greater.
Code:
INCLUDE COND=(1,2,BI,GE,51)

Nandan,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (VB)
//OUT50 DD DSN=...   output file1 (VB)
//OUT100 DD DSN=...  output file2 (VB)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT50,INCLUDE=(1,2,BI,EQ,50)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT100,INCLUDE=(1,2,BI,EQ,100)
/*
