I have two input file.Input-1 and Input-2
I need to match both the files based on a field say sec-no
Input-1 may have more that 1 records with the same sec-no whereas it is unique in input-2
If sec-no from the Input-1 matches with sec-no in the input-2, write to output with the information from input-1 and input-2
If not matches, record should be written but corresponding input-2 fields in the output should be spaces.

I copied the input-2 file into a VSAM KSDS, with dynamic access and Key as sec-no

I just need to know how the logic should be written for reading the VSAM file for each record of the input-1
I have a very little knowledge how a KSDS file is processed for a match against a sequential file
Could anyone please help me out?

Hello,

Instead of using a vsam file, suggest you download the sample 2-file match/merge code that is attached to a "Sticky" near the top of the cobol part of the forum.

It is a waste of resources to create/load/read a vsam file just to match the "keys".
