Copy blocks of information between keywords.

Postby danielgrgln » Thu Oct 19, 2017 1:09 am

Hello Folks,
Is there a way to copy blocks information where the source is a Dataset and then when a certain occurrence appears it starts to send the information to another data set until it detects an another keyword.

IE:
it reads until the following shows up on dsn:
DEADLOCK ANALYSIS REPORT - LOCK MANAGER IS PI
It starts to copy the information to another dsn.
and it stops when it detects
DEADLOCK ANALYSIS REPORT - END OF REPORT

the catch is: it will happen a lot of times when it will read the source dsn.

Is it possible through JCL Utility or a REXX ???

Thanks in advance.

Yes, there is a very easy way: You write a program to do it!

Nothing to do with JCL, per se. Moving.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
