Reply with quote

Coming to my problem, I have two files 1 and 2. And I want to concatenate each record of file 1 with all the records of file 2.

Here's an example to describe the same:

File 1
AB
BC
CD

File 2
11
22
33
44

Expected Output:
AB11
AB22
AB33
AB44
BC11
BC22
BC33
BC44
CD11
CD22
CD33
CD44

Let me know if you need any more clarification on this topic.

vissubhai,

What is your input/output RECFM/LRECL.?
If you have the latest DFSORT version, I guess you can achieve it through a JOIN application.

Assuming your input files are FB, you can use a DFSORT JOINKEYS job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//IN1 DD *
AB
BC
CD
/*
//IN2 DD *
11
22
33
44
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
  JOINKEYS F1=IN1,FIELDS=(3,1,A),SORTED
  JOINKEYS F2=IN2,FIELDS=(3,1,A),SORTED
  REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,2,F2:1,2)
  OPTION COPY
/*
