Hi All,

Can anyone please help me with JCL logic to -
- Repeat a given string in a specified column in all subsequent rows until a non-blank text is found in the same column.

Below is my input extract -
Code:

2022/04/11 07:35:36  TSO747C
           07:35:39  TSO747C
           07:41:09  TSO747C
           12:35:58  TSO264C
           12:36:01  TSO264C
2022/04/12 00:03:14  BDEFAULT
           00:03:45  BDEFAULT
           00:05:22  BDEFAULT

I want it to be like -
Code:

2022/04/11 07:35:36  TSO747C
2022/04/11 07:35:39  TSO747C
2022/04/11 07:41:09  TSO747C
2022/04/11 12:35:58  TSO264C
2022/04/11 12:36:01  TSO264C
2022/04/12 00:03:14  BDEFAULT
2022/04/12 00:03:45  BDEFAULT
2022/04/12 00:05:22  BDEFAULT

Can anyone please help me with this?

You can use to achieve your goal:
- COBOL
- SORT
- FileAid
- REXX
- Assembler
- C/C++
- 100500 other tools - on you choice

You cannot use for this task, under any circumstances:
- JCL
- VSAM

Please, select any tool you are familiar with. Then - ask a moderator to move your topic to the corresponding sub-forum.
Without that - nobody can force you to use a tool you have no idea about.
