hi all

i have an input file of record length 16 bytes. Now, the data in these 16 bytes can be any value including the special characters. the requirement is i have to look into these 16 bytes and select only those records that meet the following condition.

cond:
all the 16 bytes should not contain any special character otherwise the 16 bytes should contain only values 1 thru 9 or A thru Z.

OPTION COPY
INCLUDE COND=((10,1,CH,GE,C'1',AND,10,1,CH,LE,C'9'),
OR,(10,1,CH,GE,C'A',AND,10,1,CH,LE,C'Z'))
the above sort card takes care of 1 byte at position 10. but can we extend the same for all 16 bytes....

i know i can do this using a program but i wnat to do it using DFSORT? is it possible?

thanks in advance for ur responces
yesh

yesh,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYMNAMES DD *
check,'123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OMIT FORMAT=SS,
      COND=(1,1,NE,check,OR,
            2,1,NE,check,OR,
            3,1,NE,check,OR,
            4,1,NE,check,OR,
            5,1,NE,check,OR,
            6,1,NE,check,OR,
            7,1,NE,check,OR,
            8,1,NE,check,OR,
            9,1,NE,check,OR,
           10,1,NE,check,OR,
           11,1,NE,check,OR,
           12,1,NE,check,OR,
           13,1,NE,check,OR,
           14,1,NE,check,OR,
           15,1,NE,check,OR,
           16,1,NE,check)
