Hi All,

I have two input files with account numbers (9 bytes). For example, file A is the master file and file B is deletion file. I have to compare file B against file A and if the account number from file B is matched with file A, then I need to omit those account numbers in the output file and write the output file from file A only if there is no matching account numbers with file B.

Example:

File A (Master file):

Code:

AAAAAAAAA
BBBBBBBBB
CCCCCCCCC
EEEEEEEEE
GGGGGGGGG
HHHHHHHHH
KKKKKKKKK
MMMMMMMMM



File B(deletion file):

Code:

BBBBBBBBB
HHHHHHHHH
KKKKKKKKK



Output file should have:

Code:

AAAAAAAAA
CCCCCCCCC
EEEEEEEEE
GGGGGGGGG
MMMMMMMMG



Please note that the input files are sorted already. File A is a VSAM KSDS file and file B is GDG version and output file should a flat file.

I tried searching in the forum but got a big list in the search result, can someone please help me on this?

Regards
Gopi

DFSORT is perfectly capable of processing VSAM KSDS


the fact that one of the files is a GDG generation ( NOT VERSION ) is completely irrelevant ..
being a GDG generation affects only the DATASET naming convent, retention and catalog mangement
THE CONTENT IS NOT AFFECTED ...

remember that a SORT application ALWAYS create a new dataset ,
usually a VSAM KSKD dataset name is something a bit more static

anyway look at any JOINKEYS examples in the forums
keeping/excluding the records that are/are not in the other file

Please refer to the JOINKEY's examples from the below links and I am sure you will get the answer.
