I have one FB file with 80-byte record length. I want to copy these records into 320 record length file. That means I need to concatenate 4 records and write into output file.

Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/320)
//TOOLIN DD *
SPLICE FROM(IN) TO(OUT) ON(321,8,CH) KEEPNODUPS WITHEACH -
  WITH(81,80) WITH(161,80) WITH(241,80) USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,RECORDS=4,PUSH=(321:ID=8,SEQ=1)),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(329,1,ZD,EQ,2),BUILD=(81:1,80,321:321,8)),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(329,1,ZD,EQ,3),BUILD=(161:1,80,321:321,8)),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(329,1,ZD,EQ,4),BUILD=(241:1,80,321:321,8))
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT,BUILD=(1,320)

With z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026 (Oct,2010), you can now use the new RESIZE operator of DFSORT's ICETOOL do this more easily like this:

Code:

//S1  EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/320)
//TOOLIN DD *
RESIZE FROM(IN) TO(OUT) TOLEN(320)
/*


For complete details on the new functions for DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL available with the Oct, 2010 PTF, see:
