Please, present your results of trying DFSORT, ICETOOL, etc.

RTFM, or search for: 'SORT JOIN operation'

Hi Sergeyken,

I tried with join keys, but couldn't find solution for Sort Join with three input files.

Will try with RTFM.

If you have always three records, try MERGE and IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP.. PUSH, that should work. Other than that, do what sergeyken suggests.

Or You could do this with SPLICE as its very powerful feature of DFSORT, but I prefer what Joreg suggested to GROUP them RECORDS=3 and so on....
Code:
//STEP1 EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL 
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*   
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*   
//DSN1 DD *               
111INDIA                   
222AUSTRALIA               
333GERMANY                 
444USA                     
/*                         
//DSN2 DD *               
111DELHI                   
222CANBERRA               
444WASHINGTON             
/*                         
//DSN3 DD *               
111GOLD                   
222DIMOND                 
333SILVER                 
444PLATINUM               
//TMP DD DSN=&&TMP,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(1,1)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)       
//MERGE DD SYSOUT=*                                                   
//TOOLIN DD *                                                         
COPY FROM(DSN1) TO(TMP)                                               
COPY FROM(DSN2) TO(TMP) USING(CTL2)                                   
COPY FROM(DSN3) TO(TMP) USING(CTL3)                                   
SPLICE FROM(TMP) TO(MERGE) ON(1,3,CH) KEEPNODUPS WITHANY WITH(21,20) -
  WITH(41,20) USING(CTL4)                                             
//CTL2CNTL DD *                                                       
  INREC BUILD=(1,3,21:4,20)                                           
//CTL3CNTL DD *                                                       
  INREC BUILD=(1,3,41:4,20)                                           
//CTL4CNTL DD *                                                       
  OUTFILE REMOVECC,BUILD=(1,80,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT))                     

Output-
Code:
    COMMAND INPUT ===>                                                  SCROLL ===>    CSR

Giving any ready-to-use solutions to those who has no habit on thinking a little bit with his own mind would not help to reduce the number of kindergarten-level "questions"...

I don't disagree but I had time so tried. There is a small change that is needed to get a byte space between each word, that I will leave it for the TS to work on it. Btw everyone learn with their own capabilities and time , no rush.

Hi Sergeyken,

Please don't think we are posting without putting any efforts from our side.

Joinkeys are having limitation of two inputs.
I also tried ICETOOL, but did not get required output, may be somewhere I did wrong.

My requirement is not as simple as I posted, I posted this example because using this example I can achieve it.

We have approximately 20 db2 unload files. we are combining all these unload files on a key and create singe record and preparing single unload file.
Once file is ready, planning to load same file into new master table.

Anyways, Thank you so much for all responses.
Will try all and choose the best one.

The one I provided should work , Good Luck !

Btw you could write one big select with all 20 tables and do concate in select , easy to maintain as well , why use DFSORT. You can think about it.

BTW, i tried your solution but i am not getting desired output. I am not sure if i am doing something wrong. Below is my code and output.

Code:
//S001     EXEC PGM=ICETOOL   
//MERGE    DD SYSOUT=*         
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*

Welcome Murali!
Please use code tags when you represents the code. It will help for all of us to understand and see it better.
