Hi,

I have two datasets. First dataset contains many records:-

A102121SACHIN2013-01-12
A103524DEEPAK2013-02-01
A107458NAVEEN2013-05-28
A108965SATISH2013-03-18
...
...

Here, first 7 characters are account number.

I have second dataset containing only Account numbers:-

A102121
A108526
A107584
A108965

Now, I want to use SORT, to extract the records of the first dataset whose account number is found in the second dataset.

Is it possible with sort. Please provide solution.

Thanks,
Sachin

Try this

//SORTJNF1 DD DSN=File1,DISP=SHR
//SORTJNF2 DD DSN=File2,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=Ooutputfile,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
//*
//SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=COPY
JOINKEYS FILES=F1,FIELDS=(1,7,A)
JOINKEYS FILES=F2,FIELDS=(1,7,A)
REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,080)

Both input files should be sorted

what do you mean both files should be sorted. Joinkeys Automatically SORTS the files based on the fields specified on the Joinkeys statement. A Copy/Merge is ONLY done when you specify SORTED keyword on the joinkeys statement.
