Hi All...I have the JCL to get count of records of one file and write onto a dataset.
like
//SORTIN DD DSN=TEST.SORT.INPUT,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=output.dataset
//SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=(1,3,CH,A)
OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,
TRAILER1=('NO:',COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=8))

Is there a way to include count of multiple files into one Output file instead of writing the same JCL for every input file.
like below:
No of records in F1: 4
No of records in F2: 5
etc...

Why do you want to do that? There is a cost associated with processing files. Your client happy with you just adding to that to get some counts?

Have a look at ICETOOL's COUNT operator.

rikdeb,

Syncsort's SYNCTOOL supports DFSORT's ICETOOL COUNT operator. It can very well work on 4 input files and write the counts into a single output file.

Did you follow Bill's suggestion above?
