Hi,

I am little confused about below requirement and need help on building code/psudocode. The requirement is as below

1: File 1 acct-range (account ranges file) contains are as below 9onle 2 records)
0011000 0059999
0081000 0099999

2: File 2 data file ( details files)

Logic required

Want to read file 1 and aslo want to read file 2
If the the accounts matches with account in data file then populates details from details file and create reports with cretain condition.

Please help me to build above logic with with sample code or some way.

Note both the files have key variable of same length.

Regards,
Nilesh

it' s sunday and I am in a good mood ...

let' s assume that each record of file1 contains a range
lets call
recd the key of the record to be processed ( file2 )
key1 and key2 the two keys present in each record of the control file (file1)

Code:
read one record from file 2
read one record from file 1
build key1 and key2 for the first range
if at end of file fill key1 with an high value

do until endoffile(file2)

    if  recd >= key1 & recd <= key2 
        /* match - within range */
        process the record for match
        read one record from file2
        iterate/continue the do
    end if
    if  recd < key1 
        /* not match , below range  */
        process the record for not match
        read one record from file2
        iterate/continue the do
    end if
    if  recd > key2 
        /* not match , above range */
        read another record from file 1
        build key1 and key2 for the next range
        if at end of file fill key1 with an high value
        iterate/continue the do
    end if
end

do end of file processing and cleanup

Vasanth,

Please help me as I do not speak smiley face very well.

What does the eye rolling face mean?

Is this a positive contribution to the thread?

Personally I can see absolutely no value in that post, nor in the attempt to validate it.

If you can not contribute constructively then why bother.

You have been warned

Hi Enrico !

>> we are just trying to get a non stupid reason for the post with the rolling eyes

Do you really believe, you will get a truthful reason? I think it's just a waste of time. Would be nothing else than fucking nonsens.

For my own, i find it interesting, that this is a subject, that is discussed by a few high experienced IT-specialists. The so called creme de la creme of the 21st century.

And for me, working as an well payed consultant, it' its a diverting dissipation. And a chance to proclaim my utter bollocks to this discussion here and getting money for it.

Please don't get me wrong. Don't consider this as an affront. I have the deepest respect for persons who bother oneself about something.

But sometimes it's not worth to do this. :-)

Btw, your pseudo-code was well done, and that on a holy Sunday !!!

No offence at all!

it is really very difficult even for experienced people
to choose the posts to reply and how to reply...
post like this one and like for example
ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=53336&highlight=
should not have place in a professional forum but...

in this case I was pitying a pour soul and tried to help!

but nobody is ever happy around here

You are rude,
You replied/did not reply to a silly question,
You did not reply/replied to an intelligent question
I feel insulted,
my feet hurt,
my only neuron is tired,
my two only neurons went in a spin loop
You did not explain,
You did not give me the answer I expected
...
it' s urgent
I asked here because my support does not support me (*)

add as many idiotic complaints and whinings as You like

I just lurk and reply while doing something more interesting (*)
and I like ( since I can afford it ) to use sarcasm and unusual words
and even providing useful infos and replies

have a good day UmeySan icon_biggrin.gif
cheers
enrico

(*) for some people the best support would be certainly a rope around the neck icon_biggrin.gif

Layout of both files are as follows

Code:
Accnt range file :
01  ACCT-RANG-REC.
           05  FROM-ACCT-NO.
               10  ACRG-FROM-OFFC      PIC  X(03).
               10  ACRG-FROM-ACCT      PIC  X(05).
           05  THRU-ACCT-NO.
               10  ACRG-THRU-OFFC      PIC  X(03).
               10  ACRG-THRU-ACCT      PIC  X(05).
           05  ACRG-FILLER             PIC  X(64).

Data file Key part

01  DATALINE-REC.
           05  ML-KEY.
               10  ML-CLIENT           PIC XX.
               10  ML-OFFC-ACCT.
                   15  ML-OFFICE       PIC XXX.
                   15  ML-ACCOUNT      PIC X(5).
               10  ML-CURRENCY-CODE    PIC XX.






Till now i have done as follows

Code:
Perform READ-ACCT-RANGES

READ ACNT-RANGE-FILE                         
    END                                     
        MOVE HIGH-VALUES TO FROM-ACCT-NO
     NOT END                                 
        ADD  1           TO AR-CTR           
END-READ.                                   

PERFORM I-MAIN-LOGIC      THRU PARA-EXIT
    UNTIL FROM-ACCT-NO = HIGH-VALUES.   

MOVE FROM-ACCT-NO TO ML-OFFC-ACCT.

START MONY-LINE-FILE KEY >= ML-KEY.         
EVALUATE ML-STATUS                           
    WHEN '00'                               
        PERFORM 175-READ-DATALINE-FILE     
    WHEN '23'                               
        MOVE HIGH-VALUES TO ML-OFFC-ACCT     
    WHEN OTHER                               
        DISPLAY 'ABORT NUMBER:  ' ABEND-NUM 
        DISPLAY 'FILE STATUS :  ' ML-STATUS 
        PERFORM 999-ABORT-JOB               
END-EVALUATE.                               

175-READ-DATALINE-FILE.                       
    READ DATA-LINE-FILE NEXT.                   
    EVALUATE ML-STATUS                         
        WHEN '00'                               
            ADD  1           TO ML-CTR         
        WHEN '10'                               
            MOVE HIGH-VALUES TO ML-OFFC-ACCT   
        WHEN OTHER                             
            DISPLAY 'ABORT NUMBER:  ' ABEND-NUM
            DISPLAY 'FILE STATUS :  ' ML-STATUS
            PERFORM 999-ABORT-JOB               
    END-EVALUATE.                               

PERFORM UNTIL ML-OFFC-ACCT > THRU-ACCT-NO
perform...
peform ... etc
etc..

PERFORM 175-READ-DATALINE-FILE
Perform READ-ACCT-RANGES



Could you suggest more efficient and simple way of achieving above?


Regards,
N

It is not always possible to do this. Some problems just require a certain amount of logic (and hence code) to resolve -- and without completely changing the problem statement, you cannot get around this. Either learn to deal with the complexity, or get used to being utterly confused as an IT person, or find a career that doesn't require the complexity. Your choice.
