Dear Expert,

I require the sort card for the following requirement:

I have 5 input files of below format and record lingth of 199 char
Code:

                        FILE # 1-             Welcome            Report - 
             Name .                        FAT                 ID       Others --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                               
ABCDEFGH                      INDIA            ABVFHH ....
ABCDEFGH                      INDIA            ABVFHH ....



NOTE:
The Actual contents of the file were reoved and gave the sample file

I want to concatenate the five files of above format in 2 cases.
1) Concatenate the files by removing headers (First 4 lines) of all 5 files.
2) Concatenate the files by removing headers (First 4 lines) of only 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th files only. But the first file header remains same.

Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for. Note that NOHDER and ONEHDR must specify MOD data sets.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN1 DD DSN=...  input file1 (FB/199)
//IN2 DD DSN=...  input file2 (FB/199)
//IN3 DD DSN=...  input file3 (FB/199)
//IN4 DD DSN=...  input file4 (FB/199)
//IN5 DD DSN=...  input file5 (FB/199)
//NOHDR DD DISP=MOD,DSN=...  output file1 (FB/199)
//ONEHDR DD DISP=MOD,DSN=...  output file2 (FB/199)
//TOOLIN   DD    *
COPY FROM(IN1) USING(CTL1)
COPY FROM(IN2) USING(CTL2)
COPY FROM(IN3) USING(CTL2)
COPY FROM(IN4) USING(CTL2)
COPY FROM(IN5) USING(CTL2)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  OUTFIL FNAMES=NOHDR,STARTREC=5
  OUTFIL FNAMES=ONEHDR
/*
//CTL2CNTL DD *
  OPTION SKIPREC=4
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(NOHDR,ONEHDR)
/*
