Hi,

I want to ZIP more than one file (say two) in one PKZIP step and place it in different archive outfiles. What i want to ask is "Is it possible to ZIP more than one file in one PKZIP STEP and put those in different archives"

Is it possible to mention more than one ARCHIVE_OUTFILE parameters in a PKZIP step.

If yes can you please provide the code or syntax of how to do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The lack of information in the manual does not suggest anything to you?

I use Data 21's ZIP-390 on the mainframe, not PKZIP, and their documentation is quite clear -- you cannot have more than one file in a ZIP archive with ZIP-390.

I don't see anything in the documentation that says you can't, but I have no way to confirm or deny that.

Hi,

I have tried the below code but that has not been able to solve my problem.
My SYSIN card is as follows
Code:

-DATA_TYPE(TEXT)                                               
-TRANSLATE_TABLE_DATA(EBC#8859)                               
-DATA_DELIMITER(CRLF)                                         
-FILE_TERMINATOR()                                             
-ARCHIVE_OUTFILE(ZIPOUT1)                                     
-ARCHIVE_COMMENT(MNO)                       
-PASSWORD()                                                   
-ENCRYPTION_METHOD(STANDARD)                                   
-ACTION(ADD)                                                   
-INFILE(INFILE1)                                               
-ZIPPED_DSN(ABC.DEF,08-07-2008_3rdzip.xls)
-DATA_TYPE(TEXT)                                               
-TRANSLATE_TABLE_DATA(EBC#8859)                               
-DATA_DELIMITER(CRLF)                                         
-FILE_TERMINATOR()                                             
-ARCHIVE_OUTFILE(ZIPOUT2)                                     
-ARCHIVE_COMMENT(PKM)                     
-PASSWORD()                                                   
-ENCRYPTION_METHOD(STANDARD)                                   
-ACTION(ADD)                                                   
-INFILE(INFILE2)                                               
-ZIPPED_DSN(GHI.JKL,08-07-2008_4thzip.xls)


I thought that this code will send 3rdzip.xls to ZIPOUT1 and 4thzip.xls to ZIPOUT2.

But what this do is it put both 3rdzip.xls and 4thzip.xls into ZIPOUT2 and ZIPOUT1 is getting nothing.

Now my question is is there any way to mention in -ARCHIVE_OUTFILE which zip file to take into the archive ??

Or is there any otherway to do it? May be using some different parameter??
