Hi All,

I want to count the number of records present in a file.

I dont have DFSORT utility in my shop and so i am unable to use ICETOOL.

Is it possible to count the number of records present in a file using SORT or SYNCSORT. If so please let me know.

Thanks,
Raajan.

hi rajan,

u can get the no of records in a file using fileaid option 3.8 (batch interactive facility) ,just give the input file name and press enter..
In the next screen type 'TALLY' ,u will get the no of records easily ,instead of using DFSORT or ICETOOL ..this can be a more easier one


cheers,
sathish
