Hi,
I'm facing some issue with sort card in SYNCSORT.

The sort card that i'm using is :

Code:


   JOINKEYS FILE=F1,FIELDS=(59,12,A)                         
   JOINKEYS FILE=F2,FIELDS=(97,12,A)                         
   JOIN UNPAIRED,F1                                         
   REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,140,F2:273,3,F2:701,15,F1:141,41,?)
   SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
   OUTFIL FNAMES=ONLYF1,INCLUDE=(200,1,CH,EQ,C'1'),         
   BUILD=(1,140,60X)                                         
   OUTFIL FNAMES=MATCH,INCLUDE=(200,1,CH,EQ,C'B'),           
   BUILD=(1,200)                                             
 


Error message looks like:

Code:

Can anybody please let me know what the problem is in syntax? Thanks.

If you are expecting '?' to appear in the unpaired record output the syntax should be as below:
Code:
REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,140,F2:273,3,F2:701,15,F1:141,41),FILL=C'?'

No, it was an attempt to use the "match marker".

We had another user with 1.4.0.1R who said the ? worked :-)

For now, use the FILL technique (examples here) and contact SyncSort support. Let us know what they say, please.

Yes. As told by Bill, ? was used for record matching criteria.
So, the method suggested by Ranjith is not working.

Code:

 SYSIN :                                                                       
   JOINKEYS FILE=F1,FIELDS=(59,12,A)                                           
   JOINKEYS FILE=F2,FIELDS=(97,12,A)                                           
   JOIN UNPAIRED,F1                                                             
   REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,140,F2:273,3,F2:701,15,F1:141,41),FILL=C'?'           
   SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                             
   OUTFIL FNAMES=ONLYF1,INCLUDE=(200,1,CH,EQ,C'1'),                             
   BUILD=(1,140,60X)                                                           
   OUTFIL FNAMES=MATCH,INCLUDE=(200,1,CH,EQ,C'B'),                             
   BUILD=(1,200)

Did you check what is WER224A ?
Code:
WER224A     'DDNAME' NOT DEFINED                                 
            EXPLANATION: The  'ddname'  is  either  SORTIN,     
            SORTINnn,  SORTOUT,  SORTOFxx or SORTOFx. A re-     
            quired SORTIN or SORTOUT DD statement could not     
            be found.

Hi,
I have used the sort card provided by Skolusu on the link provided by Bill.
I am getting the same error for it also. I think '?' is not working for 1.4.0.1R version of SYNCSORT.

Gagan,

Bill stated

with at least 1.4.1.0R, SyncSorters can use the ? in the REFORMAT statement :-)


and you are in 1.4.0.1R version of SYNCSORT.

You could try to fill X'FF' and also define

Code:
 WER224A  ONLYF1   NOT DEFINED                                                 
 WER224A  MATCH    NOT DEFINED

Moreover Kolusu's solutions will be DFSORT compatible, we cannot expect it to work on Syncsort since not all DFSORT functions are supported by Syncsort, though there could be alternatives.
