Reply with quote

Hi

I have the below requirement:

Build a NDM Control card, which has the Output receiving filename in the below format:

APPL_CD_YYYYMMDD_nnnnn(...?).txt

APPL_CD - a Constant
YYYYMMDD - Asofdate - obtained from a Date VSAM file.
nnnnn(...?) - varies depending on the number of records in the Input Extract file.

For Example. assuming the AsOfDate to be 30 June 2013, and the Count of the Input file is 5000, the format of the file would look like

APPL_CD_20130630_5000.txt


The NDM card will look something like this:
Code:
SIGNON
 ............
 DSN1=ABCD.EF.GH.IJKL00.MNOPQR.S01S (0) -
 DISP=SHR
 DSN2=APPL_CD_20130630_5000.txt -
 ............
SIGNOFF
Ok, now , i am building this Control card using ICETOOL. The Variables here are the DATE and the Count. I started building the filename just for the COUNT for now (not worrying about the Date part) - using the COUNT feature and COPY feature to arrive at APPL_CD_000000152.txt

But the requirement is to get the filename as APPL_CD_152.txt (Ofcourse, i plan to add the Date part later - once i figure out how to get the Zeroes suppressed!)

What should i do to Suppress the Zeroes?

I do NOT remember the exact Code right now - maybe if needed i can provide when i get to office ... From what i remember...it looks something like below..
Code:
.....
COUNT FROM(INDD1) USING(CTL1) WRITE(COUNTDD) DIGITS(9)
COPY FROM(COUNTDD) TO(OUTDD2) USING(CTL2)

//CTL1CNTL
 SORT FIELDS=COPY
/*
//CTL2CNTL
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTFIL OUTREC=(C'APPL_CD',2,9,C'.txt')

I tried using EDCOUNT(formatting) option but end up getting the Count with Spaces something NOT like what would be desired....

APPL_CD_ 152.txt

I used the SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT) - which said I am a fool javascript:emoticon('icon_smile.gif')

the result..... APPL_CD_152 .txt

I see that this is because of the 9 bytes i pick from the CountDD. Is there a possible approach Suppressing Zeroes?

regards

EDIT: Code'd

You don't need two passes to get the count with leading zeroes suppressed. The date you are getting is also from the same file that you want to find the count of records or is it a different file? How do you identify the date from vsam file? Is it on every record or just the header or ?

Thanks for the response kolusu. The date is from a different file altogether from the other input extract file - it is a VSAM file with Unique records for different applications which forms the key. I would be picking the date from that file based on my Application key say, APPL_CD and pick the Asofdate say from position 11, a length of 8 bytes.

I would appreciate if you can let me know how you can get a count with leading zeroes suppressed and still append to the file in a single pass.

I find the Spaces was NOT clear in my first post....

Please Note that i was able to Suppress Zeroes using EDCOUNT formatting but ended up having Spaces in the resulting Filename

APPL_CD_bbbbbb152.txt - where 'b' is Blank/Space.

When i tried with SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT) i get the result as

APPL_CD_152bbbbbb.txt - where 'b' is Blank/Space.

Have you considered that the field which SQZ is operating on you have not defined as long enough to include the ".txt"?

Have you considered using the code tags to preserve the spacing in your posts. You have been here long enough to know how to use them and why you need to use them.

Hope this helps..

Code:


//TOOLIN DD *                                 
 SORT FROM(SORTIN)   TO(CTL3JNF1) USING(CTL1)
 SORT FROM(CTL3JNF1) TO(CTL3JNF2) USING(CTL2)
//*                                           
//CTL1CNTL DD *                               
 SORT FIELDS=(1,9,CH,A)                       
 INREC OVERLAY=(80:C'1')                     
 OUTFIL FNAMES=CTL3JNF1,REMOVECC,NODETAIL,   
       TRAILER1=(1:C'APPL_CD_',               
                 40:TOT=(80,1,ZD))           
//*                                           
//CTL2CNTL DD *                               
  OPTION COPY                                 
  INREC BUILD=(1,80,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT))         
//*                                           



Thanks,

I missed to include the .txt here, a slight modification of CTL1CNTL

Code:

//CTL1CNTL DD *                               
 SORT FIELDS=(1,9,CH,A)                       
 INREC OVERLAY=(80:C'1')                     
 OUTFIL FNAMES=CTL3JNF1,REMOVECC,NODETAIL,   
       TRAILER1=(1:C'APPL_CD_',               
                 40:TOT=(80,1,ZD),60:C'.TXT')
//*

First of all - Sorry Nic, i think i did NOT pay attention - will correct going forward. Thanks for the responses Bob and Ashwin.

Bob - yes i did try SQZ and am getting precise results.Not sure if there is a better approach than below Code.
Code:

Ashwin, i tried your approach and i get the below result having Spaces. Maybe that can be fine-tuned.

Code:

&DSN2=FOLDER_FF/APPL_CD_                           152     .TXT

Suresh,

You can use the below syncsort to achieve this. Here the first step creates a symbol 'CNT1' for the record count and the second step just substitutes the count in place of the dummy count text - '$$$' in the input NDM template card.
Code:
//STEP01  EXEC PGM=SORT                                                 
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SORTIN    DD DISP=SHR,DSN= Input dataset for getting count           
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=&T1,DISP=(,PASS),UNIT=SYSDA                         
//*                                                                     
//SYSIN     DD *                                                       
  OPTION COPY                                                           
  INREC IFOUTLEN=80,                                                   
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,BUILD=(1:SEQNUM,5,PD)),                       
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,                                             
             OVERLAY=(81:1,5,PD,M10,LENGTH=8)),                         
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,                                             
             OVERLAY=(C'CNT1,''',81,8,JFY=(SHIFT=LEFT,TRAIL=C'''')))   
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,TRAILER1=(1,80)                             
//STEP02  EXEC PGM=SORT                                         
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//SYMNAMES  DD DSN=&T1,DISP=(SHR,PASS)                           
//SORTIN    DD *                                                 
SIGNON                                                           
 NDM001   SUBMIT PROC=ABCASC01,CASE=YES                        -
          &PNODE=XXXXXXXX                                      -
          &SNODE=FILEXMIT                                      -
          &DSN1=ABCD.YY.YY.RXX00.XXXXXXXX.SXXXX (+0)           -
          &DISP1=SHR                                           -
          &DSN2=FOLDER_FF/APPL_CD_$$$.TXT                      -
          &MSG='JOB01 O-NDM FAIL'                               
SIGNOFF                                                         
//*                                                             
//SORTOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
