Hi,

I have a requirement as below for which I would need a help on OUTIFIL REPEAT = n where n varies on a condition as stated below:

I/P : FB LREC L80

Record/date
a2015-01-01
b2015-01-02
c2015-01-03

O/P: FB LRECL 80

Records should be repeated based on the date difference no of times between the input date & current date:

For e.g if Current Date = 2015-01-03

Record/date
a2015-01-01
a2015-01-01
a2015-01-01
b2015-01-02
b2015-01-02
c2015-01-03

Date in the I/P file and O/P file would be at a fixed position.

Could you please suggest a possible way to conditionally repeat the records with OUTFIL REPEAT parameter or otherwise.

Regards,
sks

You've been around long enough to know you should use the Code tags.

REPEAT works for each record in the OUTFIL group. The value cannot be changed.

You can use the slash-operator (/) with multiple IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logicalexpression). If you have lots of possible differences, then you can generate the code. If your differences may be huge, then you'll probably run out of space for the control cards and have to use a more general-purpose programming language (which is also possible right from the start).
