COMPARE and MERGE particular columns in DFSORT

Postby vkumarg3 » Mon Feb 22, 2016 9:21 pm

Hi,

Can anyone please help me out to merge two datasets horizontally using DFSORT as shown below.

For Example,

Data-1:
ID   Name
001 Ashok
002 Bharath
002 Sami
003 Anand

ID: 1 to 3
Name : 5 to 15

Data-2:
DOB       ID
07MAR1984 001
02JAN1982 002
04APR1981 002
17NOV1985 003

DOB : 1 to 9
ID : 11 to 13

The output is,
Data-3:
ID  Name      DOB
001 Ashok     07MAR1984
002 Bharath   02JAN1982
002 Sami      04APR1981
003 Anand     17NOV1985

ID: 1 to 3
Name : 5 to 15
DOB : 17 to 25
 


Is there a DFSORT to achieve this output.
Note:-
1) File1, File2 will not contain any duplicates.
2) File1 is FB, LRECL = 15, Key = 1 - 3
3) File2 is FB, LRECL = 13, Key = 11 - 13

Thanks in Advance..

Regards,
Vignesh.

Yes, it is a simple JOINKEYS. Lots of examples in here, also in the manuals.

Hi BillyBoyo,
Thanks for your quick response.
Please help to provide some example. I am unable to see example for such scenario.

Thanks.

Your task is to find an example that sort of looks like what you want and then adapt it to your specific scenario using a combination of the examples and the manual and plain try-it-and-see.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards

You should find the DFSORT: Getting Started publication for your version of DFSORT. There is a whole chapter, Chapter 8, on Joining records, with examples.

You'll also find examples here.
