Hello,

I am trying to understand what the below code is doing. i dont have manual for this utility.

If the below is (5,11,eq,c'start duns') then we can say that we are checking an equal to condition but we dont have 'eq' in the below what does it signify?

Code:

//P010     EXEC PGM=FILEAID                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=(,)                     
//SYSLIST  DD SYSOUT=(,)                     
//SYSTOTAL DD SYSOUT=(,)                     
//DD01O    DD SYSOUT=(,)                     
//DD01     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=RDB.APIC.WB&FILE1
//SYSIN    DD *                             
   $$DD01 COPY IF=(5,11,C'START DUNS')       
/*

If you don't have the manual for File-AID, perhaps you should be using something else.

Hello,

If you don't have access to the input file, how are you able to run the job?

If your organization ls licensed to use the product, you can download the documentation from Compuware Support (it may even be generally available, but i have not checked).

If someone is going to work on this, they need access to the data and the manual(s).

other than not being able to see the contents of the file
and
not having any manuals at your site

your site is also filled with really stupid code.

why have
$$DD01 COPY IF=(5,11,C'START DUNS'

position 5 (for 11) for a 10 char literal?

maybe change the 11 to 10
or
change the literal from
Code:
'START DUNS'

to
Code:
'START DUNS '


and are you sure it is supposed to be all caps?

man, if i worked at your site,
i would insist that they pay me in cash, daily.

by the way, what happened with this thread?

Hello,

I realize that this has gone on for a bit and feel somewhat remiss in not suggesting you edit a member in one of your "work" datasets and put in some values that contain the START DUNS in different positions and run your batch job abd see what happens. . .

Shouldn't need documentation or access to some restricted file. . .

FIle Aid defaults to EQ for operator if not specified. The given condition checks 11 bytes starting in byte 5 for the characters 'START DUNS' (which actually can only start in byte 5 or 6) and copies the record to DD01O if the match is found. If a match is not found, then File Aid ignores the record.

If your site is licensed for Fail Aid, you have access to the manuals -- whether hard copy at your site, soft copy from an internal web site, or by accessing the vendor support site and downloading them yourself.

My client is very very big.. (am not supposed to disclose my clients name) and am sure they have license for every single thing they use. The problem is that the software manuals and installations are supported by another and not us.

The RACF is supported by another .. so it will be months before i get access and manuals.

we have identified an issue with the file-aid utility itself... teams are working on this... i will keep the forum updated...

Thanks all..

The same is true of my client. The solution is escalation: go to your coordinator, your team lead, your delivery manager, your service manager, and so on up the food chain until you're told "Shut up or you're fired". And if you still can't do your job, you walk. Being blindfolded and wearing boxing gloves is not a tolerable condition of doing the job.
