You need to give the details of what exactly you're trying to do.

Hi,

I need to write a cobol pgm to read a vsam file and write data to a PS after masking some data depending upon certain contains.

eg :

INPUT FILE:
empidempnameaddress
00000nnnnnnnnaaaaaaa

if the empid is greater than 77777 then empname should be masked to 'zzzzzzzz'

OUTPUT FILE

empidempnameaddress
77777zzzzzzzzaaaaaaa

Regards,
Karthik.

Well, I can't help you with a COBOL program (you might have better luck with that in a COBOL Forum). but if doing this with DFSORT is an option for you, I can show you how to do that.

Here's a DFSORT job to do what you asked for, assuming you want to treat the VSAM file as variable length:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...   VSAM input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (VB)
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   RECORD TYPE=V
   INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(5,5,ZD,GT,+77777),
     OVERLAY=(10:C'zzzzzzzz'))
/*


If you can treat the VSAM file as fixed length, you can use this version of the job:

Code:

//S2 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...   VSAM input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB)
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   RECORD TYPE=F
   INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,5,ZD,GT,+77777),
     OVERLAY=(6:C'zzzzzzzz'))
/*
