Hi,

I have below 3 input Input files

file 1: VB LRECL= 509
1-4 : ID (integer)
9-13 : Rec-type
14-23: Act-date

File 2: VB LRECL = 535
27-30 ID(integer)
35-39 rec-type
40-49 act-date

File 3: FB LRECL = 58

user_id 4
rec 6
PS-DATE 10
STRT-DATE 10
END-DATE 10
DTL-TYPE 10
TRANS 4
SRC 4

i wanted to copy all the files to a common output file.
i want to concatenate all the 3 files and create common output file.

file 1:

1111 AA 2015-10-01
2222 BB 2015-11-01

File 2:

3333 CC 2015-02-01
4444 CC 2015-01-16

5555 CC 2015-01-10 2015-01-11 2015-01-12 type1 ACCD XXXX
6666 CC 2015-01-10 2015-01-11 2015-01-12 type2 ABCX XXXX
7777 CC 2015-01-10 2015-01-11 2015-01-12 type3 AXXD XXXX


Output file should be :

1111 AA 2015-10-01
2222 BB 2015-11-01
3333 CC 2015-02-01
4444 CC 2015-01-16
5555 DD 2015-01-10 type1 ACCD XXXX
6666 DD 2015-01-11 type2 ABCX XXXX
7777 EE 2015-01-12 type3 AXXD XXXX


is it possible to combine all these steps and achieve the output result in one step.

Thanks in advance for your help.

What happened to File 3 in your data?

You can concatenate the two VB files.

Because of the mix of VB and FB you can't concatenate directly.

You could use SORT to convert (FTOV) your FB to VB, with VLTRIM if you have large numbers of some trailing value.

Then concatenate in a simple COPY.

If desperate for one step, there is ICETOOL.

Even JOINKEYS (concatenate the two VBs on F1, and put some lower value in a temporary extension in the JNF1CNTL, and the FB for F2, and put some higher value. "Match" on the temporary values (there won't be any) and use presence or otherwise to know where to build the output from (make the REFORMAT variable-length, and that's how it works for the "conversion" in this).
