I have a process where I create control cards by querying a DB2 table and creating the correct layout for the card on a single line. I then use SYNCSORT to break up the line by a delimited value to create lines that will fit in an 80 byte record that can be used for another process.

I am getting the error when I run the file through a PARSE/BUILD to perform this split process, even when I do the sort in-place. The failing process is cloned from another process that does the exact same thing and executes without issue. If this was completely new process, I would keep trying to tweak it, but I copied this directly from a job that works fine.

Here is my SYNCSORT control card

Code:
 

OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL PARSE=(%01=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %02=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %03=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %04=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %05=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %06=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %07=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %08=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %09=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                %10=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800)),
      BUILD=(%01,/,%02,/,%03,/,%04,/,%05,/,%06,%07,/,%08,/,%09,/,%10)


Here is the JCL step (with JEM displaying the card)

Code:

//PARSE2   EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT   DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2SYS.TOOLBOX.DB2D.NDMGEN.OUTPUT
//SORTOUT  DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2SYS.TOOLBOX.DB2D.NDMGEN.OUTPUT
//SYSIN  DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2SYS.TOOLBOX.DB2D.IBP.CTL(CRENDM04)
  ----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7
   OPTION COPY
   OUTFIL PARSE=(%01=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %02=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %03=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %04=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %05=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %06=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %07=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %08=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %09=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800),
                 %10=(ENDBEFR=C'&&',FIXLEN=800)),
       BUILD=(%01,/,%02,/,%03,/,%04,/,%05,/,%06,%07,/,%08,/,%09,/,%10)
//


Here is the error message I am getting:

Here is a snippet of the input data. The '&&' is the embedded delimiter character. There are 9 occurrences per line of input.

Code:

    COPY                                                  -&&        FROM (                                                -&&
    COPY                                                  -&&        FROM (                                                -&&

While your are having FIXLEN=800 how can it then be split to FB80 records with the method you have chosen? Add REMOVECC keyword.

I am sorry, I didn't include the entire process in my original post.

There are subsequent steps in the job that will copy the resulting records into an 80 byte file and do some other cleanup before passing the file over to the end process, which will execute NDM to copy the files referenced in the control cards to a different LPAR.

I hate to code control cards by hand when I can get the machine to generate them for me. So I came up with a process to automate this CC creation.

This process was copied from one I developed that creates DCLGEN control cards from the catalog and executes them to create an entire database worth of DCLGEN members. We use it to recreate them every time we have a data model change.

It says clearly in the error message ..
either change the sort output dcb or change the build to match output dcb

Change the BUILD as follows to fix the issue.
Code:
BUILD=(%01,/,%02,/,%03,/,%04,/,%05,/,%06,/,%07,/,%08,/,%09,/,%10)

I see that I missed a line break in the build statement.

Unfortunately, this did not fix the issue.

I am breaking a single 800 byte record into 9 800 byte records using the PARSE and BUILD commands. And I have attempted to do this with a variety of SORTOUT files.

I’m confused. 9 output records, but 10 parsed variables in BUILD? Writing SORTOUT replacing SORTIN (same DSN)?

To check what's wrong, add a reasonable amount of records to the STOPAFT. Write the SORTOUT to SYSOUT=* then. SORT will tell you the expected attributes in the WER110I msg. May it be of help.

Code:
OPTION COPY,STOPAFT=100
