Hi All,

I have a request to drop records from my input file which has 24 months data and i need to drop the records of 24th month data from my input file and it looks like as below:

Input file:

ccyymm
201109................
201110................
201111................
201112................
......
......
201309................
201310................

from above data i need to drop records with value '201109'. If it is for one time request i can just use the omit in sort and eliminate those records, but my job runs every month so next month when my job runs it should remove '201110' value records and so on......

Please anyone suggest the sort condition for this using syncsort

Try this job:

Code:
//STEP01   EXEC PGM=SORT                     
//SORTIN   DD *                               
201109                                       
201110                                       
201111                                       
201112                                       
201309                                       
201310                                       
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSIN    DD *                               
 OPTION COPY                                 
 OUTFIL OMIT=(1,6,CH,LT,DATE2-24),BUILD=(1,6)
/*                                           

Output:
Code:
201110
201111
201112
201309
201310
