Hi all, in a situation wherein we need to get the sumtotal of the product of 2 values, does SORT utility be of use.

Example :-

I have a non-empty dataset. I need to get the product of 2 values for each record and finally get the sum of these products. Can this be done thru SORT ?

DFSORT can multiply two values in the same record and can get the total of values in all records. Here's an example using two ZD fields in each record:

Code:

   INREC BUILD=(1:1,3,ZD,MUL,11,3,ZD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=8)
   OUTFIL REMOVECC,TRAILER1=(TOT=(1,8,ZD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=8))


In order for me to give you something more specific, you have to give me more information.

Show an example of your input records and what you expect for output. Give the starting position, length and format of each relevent field.
Tell me the RECFM and LRECL of your input file.

The more specific you are, the more specific I can be.
