Maybe a stupid question, but if your shop has "retired" the utility, then why would you want to know about its functionality. Surely if the license has expired then the product is no longer usable.

they let it expire before converting all the control cards to whatever utility they use/don't use now.

Given the situation, my advice would be to post the whole JCL and control statement stream and hope that someone else on the forum can help you.

The reason being that the statements showing may or may not be affected by any other statements in that job stream.

Surely the documentation must be somewhere within the site either on CD or downloaded somewhere. Obviously the posting of documentation on the forum is not allowed due to copy right protection.

Maybe, just maybe, if you or someone else spoke to the ex-vendor and grovel nicely ..............................

Code:

//job card
//step1 exec pgm=comparex
//sysut1 dd dsn=fil1.ps,disp=shr
//sysut2 dd dsn=fil2.ps,disp=shr
//sysut3 dd dsn=fil3.ps,disp=shr
//sysprint dd sysout=*
//sysin dd *
FORMAT=25
MAXDIFF=9999
CONTINUE
FIELD=(1,8,C)
KEY=(1,8,C,A)
COPYDIFF
/*
//



could you explain the each parameter of cntl card, that will help me to write equivalent card using other utility.

Hello,

Suggest you copy the first 10 records of the input(s), run the process for the limited amount of input, and look at the output(s).

Looking at the input, the output, and the control statements used, it should be possible to understand the control statements.
