Appreciate all veterans help to solve the problem:

I have 3 files

File 1:
Code:
2014-10-15


File 2:

Code:

SSSS2014-10-15
WWW2014-10-16
AAAA2014-10-17
WWW2014-10-17
BBB2014-10-20


File 3:
Code:
2014-10-17


File 1 and File 3 will have start dates and end dates respectively.

Below is my desired output:
Code:

SSSS2014-10-15
WWW2014-10-16
AAAA2014-10-17
WWW2014-10-17


Basically in my output file , i should have those records which is fall in the start date (file 1 )and end date range (file 2).

This can be solved by a program, but it would be great if we can find a solution . using SORT

Thanks in advance

Assuming that you File 1 and File 3 are suitable for contcatenation, one step to read those (start first, end second) and create a symbol/SYMNAMES file sourced with the appropriate value.

Then in the second step, where you process File 2, use the symbols.

Similar to examples here where one "date file" is required, it's just that you have two.

If you click on DFSORT/ICETOOL immediately above, you'll be taken to that particular forum. There is a Search box. I put "symbols" in and about the fourth result was this.
