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

Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//FILEA DD DSN=....  input fileA (FB/11)
//FILEB DD DSN=....  input fileB (FB/11)
//FILEC DD DSN=....  input fileC (FB/25)
//FILED DD DSN=....  input fileD (FB/25)
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/72)
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(FILEA) TO(T1) USING(CTLA)
COPY FROM(FILEB) TO(T1) USING(CTLB)
COPY FROM(FILEC) TO(T1) USING(CTLC)
COPY FROM(FILED) TO(T1) USING(CTLD)
SPLICE FROM(T1) TO(OUT) ON(73,8,ZD) WITHEACH -
  WITH(12,11) WITH(23,25) WITH(48,25) USING(CTLE)
/*
//CTLACNTL DD *
  INREC OVERLAY=(73:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
/*
//CTLBCNTL DD *
  INREC BUILD=(12:1,11,73:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
/*
//CTLCCNTL DD *
  INREC BUILD=(23:1,25,73:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
/*
//CTLDCNTL DD *
  INREC BUILD=(48:1,25,73:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
/*
//CTLECNTL DD *
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT,BUILD=(1,72)
/*
