merging problem :
ICETOOL UTILITY.After the copy statements are executed
the second file gets overwritten in temp1 file instead of merging?

Please help me to merge the files.


//IN1 DD DSN=U117584.TRAIN.PDS(INFILE1),DISP=SHR
//IN2 DD DSN=U117584.TRAIN.PDS(INFILE2),DISP=SHR
//TMP1 DD DSN=U117584.TRAIN.PDS(OUTFILE1),DISP=SHR
//TMP2 DD DSN=U117584.TRAIN.PDS(OUTFILE2),DISP=SHR
//OUT DD DSN=U117584.TRAIN.PDS(OUTFILE3),DISP=SHR
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN2) TO(TMP1) USING(CPY2)
COPY FROM(IN1) TO(TMP1) USING(CPY1)

SPLICE FROM(TMP1) TO(OUT) ON(1,4,CH) WITH(6,9) WITH(11,14)

Since you are copying IN2 and then IN1 to TMP1, TMP1 must have DISP=MOD. MOD lets you append records to the end of a file. (SHR overwrites the file.) But you have TMP1 set up as a PDS member, so you can't use MOD. Instead, you need to use a sequential file with DISP=MOD for TMP1. I'd suggest using a temporary file like this:

//TMP1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)
