Hi all,
I am using Sort utility to Split the input file into 3 output file depending on a character in 3rd character

/SYSIN DD *
OPTION COPY
OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'a'),FNAMES=OUT1
OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'b'),FNAMES=OUT2
OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'c'),FNAMES=OUT3

But I want to move records to, say OUT1 if 3rd char is A or a. How to do this? If I give another OUTFIL INCLUDE with FNAMES OUT1, it is abending.

Atik,

You should not give another OUTFIL INCLUDE, Perhaps you should write like below

OPTION COPY
OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'a',OR,3,1,CH,EQ,C'A'),FNAMES=OUT1
OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'b'),FNAMES=OUT2
OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'c'),FNAMES=OUT3

Here's another way to do it with DFSORT:

Code:

  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,SS,EQ,C'aA'),FNAMES=OUT1
  OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'b'),FNAMES=OUT2
  OUTFIL INCLUDE=(3,1,CH,EQ,C'c'),FNAMES=OUT3


For more information on DFSORT's INCLUDE substring comparison tests (SS), see:
