Reply with quote

I have a file, which has lot of packed decimal format, I could view it via fileaid, i need the file aid output to be moved to a flat file, so that i can read the file directly, rather than going to file aid option, I need this because i need to export this file in readable format. Kindly help..
Code:

 File-AID - Edit - ZZZZZ.QUERY.RESULT ------------------ COLUMNS 0000
 COMMAND ===>                                                  SCROLL =
        xxxxxxxx YYYYYYY ZZZZZZZZ  qqQ      SDSDS    SDSDFSD  ASDFSDFA 
        2/BI     2/BI     2/BI     2/PS     3/PS     3/PS     3/PS     
        (1-2)    (3-4)    (5-6)    (7-8)    (9-11)   (12-14)  (15-17) 
        1------- 2------- 3------- 4------- 5------- 6------- 7-------
 ****** ***************************** TOP OF DATA ******************-CA
 000001       23     2011       11       25       65    41888    41888
 000002       23     2011       11       25       65    41452    41452

You could use FA Batch to produce a file.

Thanks for the kind response.
Could you please explain how do i do that using FA Batch, You mean to say Fileaid ==> UTILITIES ==> INTERACTIVE, if yes where do i specify the Layout, or a copy book information ?

Tried this way, but doesnt help.

Code:

//STEP01   EXEC PGM=FILEAID                         
//*                                                 
//SYSUDUMP DD  SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSLIST  DD  SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSTOTAL DD  SYSOUT=*                             
//DD01     DD  DSN=xxxxx.QUERY.RESULT,DISP=SHR     
//DD01O    DD  DSN=xxxxx.QUERY.RESULT1,DISP=OLD   
//SYSIN    DD  DSN=xxxxx.R1.WORK(TABSEC),DISP=SHR 


Advance thanks,
Magesh

Probably you can tell FA to execute in batch in stead of foreground. Like in the reformat option (option 9?).
