Hi All,

The requirement is as follows:

0200708291244 <-----HEADER(DATE AS YYYYMMDD & TIME AS HHMM)
1AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
1BBBBBBBBBBBBBBB
1CCCCCCCCCCCCC
900000003 <-----TRAILER(COUNT)

So far this is what I had tried with:

OUTFIL REMOVECC,HEADER1=(1:C'0',2:&DATENS=(4MD),10:&TIME2)

I used &TIME2 since my requirement says so. But on using &TIME2, I get a syntax error as:

OUTFIL REMOVECC,HEADER1=(1:C'0',2:&DATENS=(4MD),10:&TIME2)

at the comma between 2:&DATENS=(4MD) and 10:&TIME2

By using &TIME the header appears successfully but not as per my needs.

Why is this difference between &TIME and &TIME2 and how to satisfy my above requirement??

Thank You ALL for your time on this.

from the syntax of OUTFIL, it seems you cannot use TIME2 in HEADERn and TRAILERn, but you can use them in BUILD and OUTREC.

There is no time syntax like &TIME2.
May be after checking the above link you will be comfortable about the formats/syntaxes to be used.

Scandy,

THANK YOU.Basically my requirement is to add a header that contains a '0' followed by DATE(YYYYMMDD) followed by TIME(HHMM).

E.g.:

0200708301625
DETAILRECORDS
DETAILRECORDS
DETAILRECORDS
DETAILRECORDS
DETAILRECORDS
DETAILRECORDS
TRAILER

Sine I need TIME in HHMM format after DATE I had to use &TIME2 but there seems to be a problem with it.

Is there any alternative to add a header as per my req.?

THANK YOU

Use this ICETOOL solution for your requirement.
Note that the O/p file OUT has DISP=MOD
Code:
//*******************************************************
//STEP001  EXEC PGM=ICETOOL                             
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//DFSMSG   DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//IN1      DD *                                         
                                                         
/*                                                       
//IN2      DD *                                         
DETAILRECORDS                                           
DETAILRECORDS                                           
DETAILRECORDS                                           
DETAILRECORDS                                           
DETAILRECORDS                                           
DETAILRECORDS                                           
/*

 COPY FROM(IN1)   TO(OUT) USING(CP01)                   
 COPY FROM(IN2)   TO(OUT)  USING(CP02)

  OUTREC OVERLAY=(C'0',2:DATE1,10:TIME2)                               
/*

balimanja,

Here's a better way to do what you want with DFSORT (one pass). I assumed your input file has 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 *
1AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
1BBBBBBBBBBBBBBB
1CCCCCCCCCCCCC
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,
    IFOUTLEN=80,
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)),
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=(81,8,ZD,EQ,1),
      BUILD=(C'0',DATE1,TIME2,/,1,80)),
    TRAILER1=(C'9',COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=8))

Sorry to have pulled up this topic.

Frank, as I was testing, I noticed that the header does not appear if there are no records in the file. Can you suggest a solution to this?

Thank You,

Yes. Here's a one-pass DFSORT solution for that situation:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
DUMMY
//       DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,5,CH,EQ,C'DUMMY'),
      BUILD=(C'0',DATE1,TIME2)),
    TRAILER1=(C'9',COUNT-1=(M11,LENGTH=8))

Krisprems,

In your job, wouldn't you want the following for the OUTFIL statement to get the correct count of data records:

Code:

   OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT,REMOVECC,             
   TRAILER1=(C'9',2:COUNT=(M11,LENGTH=8)) 


Since your second COPY operator only deals with the detail records, why would you want COUNT-1 instead of COUNT?
