Hi all,

I have the following requirement and I am trying to understand if we can implement this in sort/icetool.

I have a file (MEMBER.FILE) where the first name and last name of a person is encrypted. I want to decrypt this by looking into another file where the encrypted value of each alphabet is present.

The first name and last name is in between 10 - 50 columns (Inclusive) in the MEMBER.FILE.

The file (MAP.FILE) that contains mapping is of the below layout

Code:
01 Org-value pic x(01)
01 filler        pic x(01)
01 encrypted value pic x(01)


A-C
B-E
...
..
Where A is the actual value and C is the encrypted value.

Is it possible to look into the map.file and decrypt the name portion in the member.file using sort/icetool and create a new file membconv.file with the decrypted value using sort/icetool only?

First, convince yourself that a big FINDREP can do what you want. Do this by making a small but non-trivial FINDREP.

Then use your reference file to generate the control cards you need for the FINREP step.
