Hello,

I have requirement to check whether the list of card numbers are present in a file or not..

say, File1 has the below data, Where first 5 characters represents Card number.

00001ABCDE
00012ACDSE
00014AAAER
00014ZSDFA
00009AZSDF
00019AATEW
00006AEWER
00011AMMPP

So Output should look like:

00001 RECORD FOUND
00002 RECORD NOT FOUND
.
.
.
.
00019 RECORD FOUND

Can anyone please help me doing it with sort.[/code]

Ah - by sort - not by JCL as thtile infers. Just as well because JCL cannot do it. Neither can anything else - given your input everything is either found or not found as you have not provided anything to compare against! Also, LRECL and RECFM, possibility of duplicates etc, would be useful once we know all the data specifications.

If you have a list to compare against then start looking and experimenting with JOINKEYS.

My bad,.. I should have mentioned it as SORT in the subject line...

File 1 has LRECL 231 (VB)
File 2 has LRECL 5 (VB)

And File1 being a daily data file, it may have duplicate records. File 2 has unique cardnumbers.

JOINKEYS, SUM FIEDLS=NONE on your file with duplicates. If you need it back in the original order, you'll have to SORT in the Main Task. Lots of examples here.
