Hi Team,

I have used FILE-AID Step in Batch JCL to compare Date and hour .
Hour is in Numeric data (pic 9(02)). Problem is Numeric condition fails and it is not even working on .

I referred manual it says for numeric data compare it needs to use
N'02' like.


Code:

COPY IF=(1,EQ,C'2017-09-21'),
      AND=(11,GE,N'02')


And condtion is not even have control . Please advise me what i am missing here .

The manual "File-AID/MVS Batch Reference Release 17.02" doesn't define any constant data type as N'...'

Hi Sergeyken,

Sorry for the delayed response. My bad i misunderstood the manual .
Any numeric data can be compared with BATCH JCL using FILE-AID provided they have specify the complete length or starting position of number actually needs to check . This will applicable only for variables declared as numeric PIC 9(n) . In my case i need to use simply



Code:

COPY IF(1,EQ,C'2017-09-29',
           11,GE,C'02')


Using "C" we can compare numeric data and specify full length if required or use the position exactly .
