The above JCL provided is an example of SortXsum.
The Iput file is sorted on the bytes 1----7 and the i/p rec is wriitten into the o/p file denoted by SORTOUT.
In SYSIN it is mentioned SUM FIELDS=NONE,XSUM,
1) None :- indicates there should be no duplicate in the O/p
2) XSUM :- indicates the duplicate record should be mentioned in the file corresponding to SORTXSUM ddname;
Hence if 1----7 characters is name field and if the name is repeated twice in the i/p file the first rec after sorting will be put in the o/p file and the second rec goes to Xsum file.
Do inform me if any further information is required....
In the example given (JCL), is there a way to OMIT or SKIPREC some records from being processed in the XSUM?
Input file contains both Issue and cancel records.
(I)ssue records may be duplicated.
(C)ancel records that are duplicated cause an abend (long story).
I need to be able to exclude the Issue records from being sorted "out".
