Reply with quote

Greetings.

I'm trying to write an automated code to filter data from input files.

There are multiple input files and from them, i'm trying to filter out data based on a key value (eg: xyz at location 1-3).

Dynamic datasets are to be allocated for each key and the no. of key can vary.
I've been browsing through the the forum and tried to automate things by myself, but ended in vein.

Can someone give some hints in building the program? I'm pretty new to cobol and pl excuse if the task data i've mentioned is not complete.

Your help is highly appreciated.

What you want can be done using BPXWDYN, but it is certainly not a task for someone "pretty new to cobol (sic)".
