Hi Priyesh,

Thanks.

Yes, i do want to check whether the data is properly copied or not also

pls let me know what steps are to be followed while copying from one flat file to multiple flat files to make sure that the data will be copied as per the requirement & the output is perfect.

Regards,
Anu.

Hi Anu,

There can be several ways to get the data checked.

One of the way is putting HEARDER & TRAILER records in I/P File.

After copying just check for HEADER & TRAILER records in O/P Files.

Regards,

Priyesh.

record length is another factor to be considered here.

Hi Anu,
U can verify just by placing a counter while copying the files
suppose there r 200 records then ur output should be 202 (including Header & Trailer)..Thanks ...!! Hope this is clear for u..!!

u could compare comparex or the superc utility to compare both the files to see if the entire file is copied and if there are any differences between the two files.
