Then search for "Eliminate".

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your input file had RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
  OUTFIL OMIT=(81,8,ZD,GE,+401,AND,81,8,ZD,LE,+410),
    BUILD=(1,80)
/*

You can now do this more easily using the new SUBSET operator of DFSORT's ICETOOL available with z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90013 (July, 2008) like this:

Code:

//S1  EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//TOOLIN DD *
SUBSET FROM(IN) TO(OUT) REMOVE INPUT RRN(401,410)
/*


For complete details on the new SUBSET function and the other new functions available with PTF UK90013, see:
