Hi All,

I have two datasets which have different length.How to compare the dataset using sort cards

Example : my input file is

XMMD01.PROD.DATASET1 =>70 LENGTH
XMMD01.DEVL.DATASET1 =>120 LENGTH

COMPARSION SHOULD BE the file1 with file2 position from
1 to 30 => 30
40 to 70 => 30
110 to 120 =>10

can you please give me a idea or JCLS for this requirement.

we need to do the comparsion for 900 datasets like the above

Thanks in advance

DO NOT post the same question in multiple forum areas !!

So what exactly are you going to compare bytes 110-120 against in a corresponding 70 byte record ?

What's wrong with the IBM compare utility that already exists ?
Obviously you can only compare the first 70 bytes of each record and that can so easily be achieved with the correct control statements.

Hi expat,

The problem we have nearly 900 comparsion like this.So we compare manually it will have manualy work.
To avaoid this manual work
i just give the list of input dates
like
xmmd01.prod.set1 xmmd01.devl.set1 sortcard
xmmd01.prod.set2 xmmd01.devl.set2 sortcard
xmmd01.prod.set3 xmmd01.devl.set3 sortcard
....
....
....
xmmd01.prod.set900 xmmd01.devl.set900

So only file i give the above format and rexx code or JCLS will compare all the datsets and produce the results
this is what i am expecting

May give you some positive leads

You can supply the file list to your REXX and use the program logic to build and action the compares for each file pair.

JCLS will compare

JCLs (not JCLS) will NOT compare. JCL is a specific language that allows you to execute programs, application or utility, in batch. Please get the terminology correct.
