Hi,

I need to compare two tape files having same attributes. I tried it using SUPERC and the job took more than 24 hours. Can ICETOOL help me in this regard? OR if anyone has any other idea then please share with me.

If ICETOOL is a good idea then could someone please give me an sample JCL. My requirement is just to compare 2 tape file and write the match , non-match report in one ps file.

Sure? For two tapes?
Or multi tapes?
Do you know approx the numbers of records?
Wait time to mount tapes?

Strange.
Can you give more info : exec jcl. ...

I suspect DFSORT's JOINKEYS function would be a better choice than ICETOOL. For complete details on JOINKEYS, see:

and
