Current Scenario:

Doing File Matching using User Exit routine E35.

1) Intializing Intermediate file, For each record, adding 'M' or 'U' at the last byte+1 of file if 'matching found' or "no match' respectively.

2) In Sort(E35) jcl, writing into 2 different file(dropped, Sortout) based on Last byte +1( U or M)


Code:
  SORT FIELDS=(14,4,PD,A)
  INCLUDE COND=(13,1,CH,EQ,C'K')
  MODS E35=(programA,50000,MODLIB,C)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=DROPPED,INCLUDE=(405,1,CH,EQ,C'U'),
  BUILD=(1,00404)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT,INCLUDE=(405,1,CH,EQ,C'M'),
  BUILD=(1,00404)
  OPTION COBEXIT=COB2
  RECORD LENGTH=(,,405)
  END



ISSUE:
For VB files, since I am Initalizing and padding additional character (or due to any other reason), length of individual records are changed to maximum record length.
But in down stream,during file validation, error occurs due to mismatch in header length.

Question:
Is there any way I can directly write into two different files without padding extra character.
Note : this is common routine, so Output file length will be passed in sysin mentioned above.

Well, you've shown no code from your EXIT, so we can't guess what you've done in there.

Certainly the BUILDs that you have will give you fixed-length variable-length records.

As it is a VB file you should be adding your flag(s) at the beginning of your record.
