Dear Experts,

I am in a situation where I have to do the selective copy of record in file like as follows

a)The output file should be having the 1,3,5,7.....series like records copied from input file.
The input file lenght is 133 and I knw the record count in file...

Please suggest as I was not able to think with what search string I should search in this forum to see if something have already been discussed!!

Thanks

1,3,5,7 would be every second record (or every odd record), not every third record. You could use a DFSORT job like the following to do that:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL SAMPLE=2

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
