Hi,

I have an input as below (length=80bytes)

AAAA 20140101 20140131
AAAA 20140201 20140228
AAAA 20140301 20140330

Required output is (length=80bytes)

AAAA 20140101 20140330

I need to get the date1 from first record and date2 from 2nd record.

Is it can be done using ICETOOL? The number of records can be varying.
Please help

Thanks

Are you sure I see the date2 taken from third record

1.How many records do you expect on a high volume flow day?
2.If the records are varying still should the data taken from 1st and 2nd record ( It is first and third here in output is that typo)

Have a look at this one to see if you can adapt it to your requirement.

Or you can look at ICETOOL's SELECT with LAST, You'll need a USING file. You might be able to work on this one.
