Hi All,

I have threee input files callled A,B,C and output file D and wanted to match on basis of field called NUMBER. All files are sorted on NUMBER field.

If record of file A matches with B or C wrtie record in file D.

Can you please suggest how to do this.

Hello,

Depending on how much experience you have, you could write a 3-file match/merge using the A file as the driving file.

If your experience is somewhat limited, you could consider combining the B and C files and cloning the 2-file match/merge tested sample code that is an attachment to the "Sticky" near the top of this COBOL part of the forum.
