Input file looks like this with lrecl=996 & recfm=VB
Code:
FDXDB01 EXAM0011.718.FIMAT.


Below are the Control cards
Code:

//SORTIN    DD DSN=INPUDT.DSN
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=OUTPUT.DSN
//             DISP=(,CATLG),DCB=(LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=0,RECFM=FB),
//SYSIN DD *
  OPTION COPY
  INCLUDE COND=(13,4,CH,NE,C'INIT')
  INREC PARSE=(%01=(ABSPOS=5,ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=16),
       %02=(ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=09),
       %03=(ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=27)),
    BUILD=(1,4,
        5:%02,
       14:%03,
       84:X)
  SORT FIELDS=(5,9,CH,A)
/*


Would like to execute the next step based on RC from the above step ?
Set RC=04 if input is empty , OR
Set RC=00 if input is not Empty

Would like to know where can i include the following statement
in the above control card ?
COUNT FROM(Input) EMPTY

Assuming you mean "if output is empty", you can use the NULLOUT=RC4 option, e.g.

Code:

   OPTION COPY,NULLOUT=RC4


COUNT is an ICETOOL operator, so you would need to use it with a PGM=ICETOOL job, not with a PGM=SORT job.

Dear Frank,

Thanks for your quick response . But it doesnt seem to be working the way we wanted.

After including the statement "OPTION COPY,NULLOUT=RC4 " , It gives RC=0.
[/code]
Code:

OPTION COPY,NULLOUT=RC4
INCLUDE COND=(13,4,CH,NE,C'INIT')
INREC PARSE=(%01=(ABSPOS=5,ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=16),
       %02=(ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=09),
       %03=(ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=27)),
    BUILD=(1,4,
        5:%02,
       14:%03,
       84:X)
 SORT FIELDS=(5,9,CH,A)
 OUTFIL VTOF,BUILD=(5,80)

Please let me know if i am missing something

Thanks

suyerasi,

Sigh. You changed your control statements between your first post, my post and your new post. First you didn't have an OUTFIL statement, now you do. Without the OUTFIL statement, NULLOUT=RC4 is the correct parameter to use. With the OUTFIL statement, you have to use NULLOFL=RC4 on the OUTFIL statement instead of NULLOUT=RC4. So the control statements should be:

Code:

  OPTION COPY                                                 
  INCLUDE COND=(13,4,CH,NE,C'INIT')                           
  INREC PARSE=(%01=(ABSPOS=5,ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=16),       
         %02=(ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=09),                       
         %03=(ENDBEFR=X'05',FIXLEN=27)),                     
      BUILD=(1,4,                                             
          5:%02,                                             
         14:%03,                                             
         84:X)                                               
   SORT FIELDS=(5,9,CH,A)                                     
   OUTFIL VTOF,BUILD=(5,80),NULLOFL=RC4

Frank,

I am sorry you are correct. While copying the control card i missed the last statement. Again thanks for your reply.


Regards
