im trying to merge three ps files

when i submit the job i get an error as

out of sequence in sortin02 or

out of sequence in sortin03

i tried to make the contents of the files in the ascending order

even then im getting the same error.

im also not sure about the sysntax of the merge fields

suggest me a merge field with parameters

here's the job
Code:


//U117557$ JOB MSGCLASS=X,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),CLASS=B,
//         REGION=5M,NOTIFY=&SYSUID             
//STEP1     EXEC PGM=SORT                       
//SYSPRINT  DD SYSOUT=*                         
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                         
//SORTIN01  DD DSN=U117557.TRAIN.IN1,DISP=SHR   
//SORTIN02  DD DSN=U117557.TRAIN.IN2,DISP=SHR   
//SORTIN03  DD DSN=U117557.TRAIN.IN3,DISP=SHR   
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=U117557.TRAIN.OUT1,DISP=SHR   
//SYSIN     DD *                                 
          MERGE FIELDS=(12,3,A,6,5,A),FORMAT=CH 
/*

If the input files are not sorted you may get this error. MERGE expects the files to be in the presorted order. Try to sort these files before merging them.

I don't understand your MERGE statement:

MERGE FIELDS=(12,3,A,6,5,A),FORMAT=CH

The data you show appears to be characters, starting in column 1 for a length of 10. Why is your MERGE statement not defined as:

MERGE FIELDS=(1,10,A),FORMAT=CH

which would give you this output:

aganeshram
arun
bdinesh
cindia
dnarmatha
esanu
fkutti
gmathan
pradeep
push

This is the general syntax of the MERGE field.

MERGE FIELDS=(Positionofthefield, Lengthfromtheposition, Ascending/Descending,FORMAT)
Supposing if u want to merge files first on one field, later on another field u'll repeat the same.

And ur merge field says,
U r going to merge the files based
on the field which start at 12th pos, and length 3 and in ascending order.
Then on the field at 6th position and length five.
But in the inputs u have given there is nothing starting at 12th pos
MERGE FIELDS=(12,3,A,6,5,A),FORMAT=CH

Try this

MERGE FIELDS=(1,2,A,CH)

Try Sorting each input file with the following option

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=(12,3,A,6,5,A),FORMAT=CH


and merge the sorted files with

Code:

  MERGE FIELDS=(12,3,A,6,5,A),FORMAT=CH


Hope this will work.
