I want to create a cobol program fro the below requirement..
Reqmt: Input file has 3 types of Accounts. We want to segregate and write these 3 types of accounts to 3 different files. if any one of the o/p file was empty . it should not create even an empty file(this case should be handled in cobol program itself).

Unless the files are dynamically allocated by the COBOL program,
(output for a file is determined as yes)
you will need to have a succession of 3 IEFBR14's,
each referencing with a DISP=(old,delete,delete) one of the files,
and having a double
[e.g. (rc=1)or(rc=4)] (syntax found in JCL reference manual and the users guide - great write-up)
COND CODE= parm for the EXEC parm,
or an IF,
controlled by the Return-code of the COBOL program.
