Hi,

I have two datasets and below are the details:
Datset1:
Record lenght: 2119

Dataset2:
Record lenght:10

I want to replace the contents of columns 22 to 31 of Dataset1 with Dataset2's data.Remaining data in the Dataset1 should remain same.Can you please let me know how to achieve this with DFSORT/ICETOOL?

How many records on Dataset2?

If more than one, how do they match to Dataset1?

We assume Fixed-length records?

Hi Bill,

Record count of both datasets is same and they are Fixed-lenght.I don't have any matching records that is the problem here.I just want to replace the columns 22 to 31 of Dataset1 with 1-10 columns of dataset2.

Hello pullaiah,

Here is the approach

1. Add sequence numbers to both the input files.
2. Use Joinkeys to match upon the sequence number and reformat the fields to include your column from file2 to file1.

So you have a one-for-one relationship between the two files (no key stuff).

Whilst the sort wizards are having their tea/coffee and biscuits, why don't you look up the word "cartesian" in your sort manual.

Hello,
try this,
Code:

//JOINS    EXEC PGM=SORT                         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                           
//IN1      DD DSN=DATASET1-LRECL2119,DISP=SHR   
//IN2      DD DSN=DATASET2-LRECL10,DISP=SHR     
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=OUTPUT-DATASET,DISP=OLD       
//SYSIN    DD *                                 
 JOINKEYS F1=IN1,FIELDS=(2120,8,A),SORTED,NOSEQCK
 JOINKEYS F2=IN2,FIELDS=(11,8,A),SORTED,NOSEQCK 
 REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,21,F2:1,10,F1:32,2088)   
 OPTION COPY                                     
/*                                               
//JNF1CNTL DD *                                 
 INREC OVERLAY=(2120:SEQNUM,8,BI)               
/*                                               
//JNF2CNTL DD *                                 
 INREC OVERLAY=(11:SEQNUM,8,BI)                 
/*                                               


P.S Tested with 80 LRECL datasets.

as usual you forgot to tell ..
what <SORT> product You are using and it' s <level> (version/release)

run this job and POST the results
Code:
****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
 000001 //SORTLEVL JOB NOTIFY=&SYSUID,                                         
 000002 //             MSGLEVEL=(1,1),CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X                       
 000003 //*                                                                     
 000004 //S1      EXEC PGM=SORT

 000006 //SORTIN    DD *

 000010 //SYSIN     DD *                                                       
 000011   OPTION COPY                                                           
 ****** **************************** Bottom of Data ****************************


so that people willing to help might post a solution compatible wit Your sort <level>

if Your <level> of <SORT> does not provide JOINKEY functionality
search the forums. there are solution using ICETOOL and SPLICE

we have nothing to clarify icon_evil.gif

You asked a question, You were given a good answer.
You whined that id did not work without giving any other explanation

since many of the question related to JOINKEY are due to the sort <level>
asking about it is the fastest way to avoid wasting time

You are getting the error because...
how in h311 could we know
the reason is that you made some error in implementing the suggestion given amen

if You want good answers learn to post good questions

36_11_6.gif hard to believe
if You had we would not be here wasting time
what about looking at one of the jobs You were using and investigate the differences

since You posted in the dfsort forum You were give a dfsort solution

while providing the same functionalities the two products differ in some keywords

so start doing a bit of the work You are getting paid for

search the forums for JOINKEYS and specify to search only the JCL forum

the answer is there waiting to be picked up,
I checked an the error is evident

no reason for You not to be able to do it Yourself
but naturally You are too <any adjective of Your choice> to try icon_evil.gif

The solution vasanth provided is for DFSORT.

Since you are using SYNCSORT and it does not support JNF1CNTL, JNF2CNTL and NOSEQCK parameters. So you need to split the single step into three steps

1. Add sequence number to file1
2. Add sequence number to file 2
3. Match using the join keys and reformat the ouput


Similar kind of requirement is solved using syncsort here

TS is not looking for a cartesian product. . . Just a one-for-one combination process.
