The job below works fine, but just for experimentation, tried to do the build from 1 to 3451 and an overlay of the only position that needs to be changed. I couldn't find any examples of using the BUILD and OVERLAY together, and by trial and error of combining the two options have only met with errors
Not a problem if it isn't possible as the job I have already created works fine anyway.
ICE201I H RECORD TYPE IS F - DATA STARTS IN POSITION 1
ICE107A F DUPLICATE, CONFLICTING, OR MISSING INREC OR OUTREC STATEMENT OPERANDS
ICE005A 0 BLANK NEEDED IN COLUMN 1 OR OPERATION NOT DEFINED CORRECTLY
I don't have DFSORT here, but I was wondering how the non-matching records from File1 will be handled in the above job, Wont it come to the output just as it is in the REFORMAT along with the indicator at pos-3452?
The DFSORT job is a replacement for another job, using two steps and SAS to produce the file. I have created both files from
a) The original job
b) The DFSORT job
and running a compare both files are exactly the same, so I have no worries over the validity of the output, but was just wondering if I could combine both the BUILD and OVERLAY together.
