Hi

In the below e.g. how to identify the end of a group of records.


Record type A - appears for each customer no. in file. Record type B is the customer details.Both A and B are in position 1. The no.of times B may occur for a customer is not fixed.

A
B
B
B
A
B
B
B
B
A
B
A
B
B


Using when=group , the records are grouped, so basically the first 4 records are a group as they are details of a customer. Then the next 5 records are details of another customer. SEQNUM with RESTART doesnt seem to work when tried with INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP) option.

Is there any way to identify the end of a group here ? i.e the last record in each group ?

The o/p should have A , the 1st B and last B in each group.

Thanks

If you start with this topic, and follow the links, you should find sufficient to allow you to identify the last, and then select with OUTFIL OMIT=/INCLUDE=.

Sorry about that, I've updated the original. Yesterday was not a good day for typing.
