Hi ALL,

I have two flat file.
I have to compare both and if any new records are added then those should be copied to new flat file.
Only the new records.

Is their any way which we can do through file-aid or through jcl sort.

THANKS
SHRI

Shri,

What I assumed here is, you want to EXTRACT records from File-2, which are not present in File-1... Pls confirm.

One more thing, Are the new records being added to the bottom always in the File-2.

Regards,
Priyesh.

Shri,

If you need more specific help, show an example of the records in your input files and what you expect for output. If there are duplicate records within either file, show that in your example. Also, give the RECFM and LRECL of each input file.
