My problem definition is:
I have two files.
Customer file: It has two fields. Customer name and customer no
Customer name has no spaces in between
Customer name is x(25) and cusomer no is s9(6).

Check file: It has 2 fields.

Check no 9(10).
Check alpha x(10). It has no spaces in between.

Let's say,
File A has below records
zabc?efg 12345
@kjlabcmnp 1234

File B

999 abc
888 efg

I want to find if my check alpha entire string is present anywhere in the customer name field

If that is present then I want my output to be like..

999 abc zabc?efg 12345
999 abc @kjlabcmnp 1234
888 efg zabc?efg 12345

I tried doing this through sequential processing and doing the search of substring.
But File A and File B both contains approximately 5 millions of records.
So my job takes around 24 hous which is not feasibe at all.

Let me know how I can do this with reasonable performance.

Thanks,
Mihir

You can use INSPECT to make a search for the substring.
How did you made your search? Could you please let us know.

Hi,
The problem is not with the search.
I have tried using different logic involving, inspect, string etc.
My programms works fine.
But the approach with the cobol inspect etc is not feasible as 5 millins records are present in both files which leads to 24 hours of job execution.

Thanks,
Mihir

Mihir,
Honestly ur logic is still unclear,bcos of the 3 records in ur output file with 2 records in each of the Input file. INSPECT can be very expensive for complex string operations. So can you show me the code that u tried with out the INSPECT Function.
