Hi!
I have a input with 4 records of different length(8 and 9) with garbage value 'b' as shown below:

INPUT:
22222222bbbbb apple
33333333bbbbb apple
444444444bbbb apple
555555555bbbb apple

My output should not contain any garbage value 'b' and the records with length 8 has to copy in one file and records with length 9 has to copy another file..I.e;

Output-1:
22222222bbbbb apple
33333333bbbbb apple

Output-2:
444444444bbbb apple
555555555bbbb apple

Can anyone please help me out with the code.. either jcl or cobol is ok...

0. Use the Code button to enter any data and/or code samples.

1. What did you try so far?

First, this is a HELP forum, not a WRITE-THE-CODE-FOR-YOU forum. We're not going to just provide you code. Now, if you're willing to pay for the code, I'm sure you can find someone to write it for you (typical rates are around one thousand US dollars (or euros) per day and there's usually a one-day minimum.

Second, JCL establishes environments and executes programs -- it CANNOT be used to solve this problem for you. One of the SORT products probably could, and COBOL certainly can, but not JCL.

Third, your problem statement is not consistent with your desired results. You say "My output should not contain any garbage value 'b'" and yet your outputs both have 'b' values. So you have either misstated your problem or provided incorrect sample data -- both of which make it very difficult to continue.

I also gave you a warning for violating forum rules by posting the same question multiple times. Once is enough -- we'll see your post.
