Hi,

I have to sort a file based on one key and remove the duplicated using another key.
First sort the file using the below key:
Code:
SORT FIELDS=(1,15,CH,A,26,4,CH,A,23,2,CH,A,20,2,CH,A)


Then remove the duplicate records using the below key:
Code:
SORT FIELDS=(1,15,CH,A)
SUM FIELDS=NONE       


I can acheive this using two steps in JCL, but i was looking if both the things are possible in single JCL step.

Please Help, Thanks
Nirmal

kedarinirmal,

Assuming you input has an lrecl of 80 bytes and is of FB recfm , use the following control cards which will give you the desired results
Code:

//SYSIN    DD *                                               
  SORT FIELDS=(1,15,CH,A,26,4,CH,A,23,2,CH,A,20,2,CH,A),EQUALS
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,SECTIONS=(1,15,HEADER3=(1,80))
