Hi All

Here is my requirement. I've two sequential files with different lengths.

File -1: Lrecl=350 Byte
File -2: Lrecl=23 Byte

I want to have 3 kinds of outout as below.

1)Only Matched cases
2)Only file-1 records
3)Only file-2 records.

Matching Criteria :
----------------------
File-1: 1-3 ,4,3, 7,8, 289,6( total : 23 Byte)
File-2: 1-23

Can you please let me know solution for this Using ICETOOL.

You can use one of the sample inserted in this forum that referr to the SPLICE function.
Two different length are easily solved with INREC/OUTREC.
ICETOOL(DFSORT in general) is powerfull in all direction.
Try to explain your matching criteria with an INREC or OUTREC
You will able to adapt first file to the second( or the contrary) depending of which kind of output you need.

Make a search in this forum for other information.

This will give you matching records from file1 and file2 in the same format as of file 1.
Since the key for file 1 is not mentioned properly, I am assuming it this way to make it a 23 byte key.

File-1: from pos-1,3byes ,from pos-4,3bytes, from pos-7,8bytes, from pos-289,9bytes( total : 23 Byte key)

File -2: the whole file of 23bytes is the key.

Code:

//SORT1    EXEC PGM=ICETOOL                                           
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//LIST99  DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//IN1     DD DSN=infile 2(of 23 bytes),DISP=SHR                               
//IN2     DD DSN=infile 1(of 350 bytes),DISP=SHR                               
//T1      DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)     
//OUT     DD DSN=out file(of 350 bytes),DISP=*                               
//TOOLIN  DD *                                                         
  COPY   FROM(IN1)   TO(T1)       USING(CTL1)                         
  COPY   FROM(IN2)   TO(T1)       USING(CTL2)                         
  SPLICE FROM(T1)    TO(OUT)  ON(1,23,CH) WITHALL -                   
         WITH(1,350) WITH(352,1) USING(CTL3)                           
/*                                                                     
//CTL1CNTL DD *                                                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=T1,OVERLAY=(351:C'11')                                 
/*                                                                     
//CTL2CNTL DD *                                                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=T1,OUTREC=(1:1,14,15:289,9,24:15,274,298:298,53,C'22')
/*                                                                     
//CTL3CNTL DD *                                                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT,                                                   
  OUTREC=(1:1,14,15:24,274,289:15,9,298:298,53),                       
  INCLUDE=(351,2,CH,EQ,C'12')                                         
/*                                                                     


Why you need other 2 outputs, when the 2 input files itself have the same info.
Please let me know whether this is hel[ful to you.
