Hi,

I want to merge 2 files using sort.

File1 is a header file with below records
Code:
 Customerno   name   amount 


File2 is a record file with some hexadecimal feilds in it. 3300000033 is a hexadecimal value.
Code:

123456789  ABCDEFGHIJ  3300000033
   


I am fomatting the hexadecimal values using sort and in the same sort step i want to concatenate the above 2 files.

OUTREC FIELDS=(64,8,PD,TO=ZD,X)

So, concatenate in the JCL. What problem does that give you?

I don't want to format the header file and only want to format the record file.
But as per the below code it will format both the files and header file is having only charcter data hence it is throwing S0C7.

Both the files is having record length of 124.

Code:

//SORT1    EXEC PGM=SORT                                               
//SORTIN   DD DISP=SHR, DSN= Header File
//              DD DISP=SHR, DSN= Record file                             
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=output,  DISP=SHR                     
                                                   
//SYSIN DD *                                                           
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                     
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,10,C';',                                           
                 11,40,C';',                                           
                 51,10,C';',                                           
                 61,3,C';',                                           
                 64,8,PD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIIIIIIII),SIGNS=(,-),C';',     
                 72,8,PD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIIIIIIII),SIGNS=(,-),C';',     
          64,8,PD,SUB,72,8,PD,EDIT=(SIIIIIIIIIIIIIII),SIGNS=(,-),C';',
          80,3,PD,EDIT=(TTTTT),C';')

If you want to use JOINKEYS to avoid writing an IFTHEN=, you can. If you want to do the concatenation in the JCL somewhere "after" this, you can. These would be very poor use of resources (client paying for them, as well).

Or you can use IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logexp to avoid doing anything to the header.

Actually I did concatenation after the sort step and it worked.

But I was looking for a better solution to do in single step(SORT step).

Thanks for your time and inputs on the same..

Have a nice weekend.

If both files have the SAME DCB properties you can simply concatenate them and just sort the detail records.
