Create output from 5 inputs, splicing & findreplace

Postby Kevin Jenkins » Thu Apr 08, 2010 3:39 pm

The end result is already met using a non-DFSORT solution. I am required, however, to convert the process to DFSORT, and through testing I have arrived at the sequence below. This produces the correct result, but it has quite a lot of hops, and so I was wondering if there was a smarter DFSORT/ICETOOL way of going about this.

In Summary:
INPUT1 contains a record which provides output print formatting.
INPUT2 contains a record which is output.
INPUT3 contains a date (dd/mm/yy) value which is to be overlaid on the record output from INPUT2.
INPUT4 contains a record which begins with x'15' between each word. Each x'15' is to be replaced by x'40' in the output.
INPUT9 contains a record which provides print formatting record, and another record which is output.

Grateful for advice.
Regards, Kevin

Kevin Jenkins ,

There is a much easier way to do it and you really don't need that many passes of data. I need the following Details

1. What is the LRECL and RECFM of all input files? Are they all of same lrecl and recfm?
2. Is there any thing in these files which can be used to distinguish as to which file the record came?
Also please run the following job and show me the entire sysout

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                                         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*

Skolusu, thanks for your reply. I forgot to mention that our latest maintenance was PTF UK900913. I have run the job step and posted the SYSOUT as you requested. As for the input files their attributes are are as follows ...

INPUT3 is RECFM=FB,LRECL80
INPUT4 is RECFM=FBA,LRECL=255
I may have some latitude with the rest (INPUT1,2 and 9). My preference is RECFM=FB,LRECL80 as this would encourage the job owner to locate those records in an existing data library. If it helps you these records do not necessarily have to be spread across three separate INPUTn files they could be co-located.

OUTPUT1 which I have shown as a SYSOUT will in fact be a NEW,CATLG data set which will be RECFM=FBA,LRECL=255.

Regards, Kevin

Skolusu, re Is there any thing in these files which can be used to distinguish as to which file the record came? then I don't have a good handle on the business data in INPUT4. That data is certainly very different and less formatted/predictable than the date that comes from INPUT3, and the two header records that go before it - see what I listed in INPUT1,2 and the two trailer records after it - see what I had in INPUT9.

Kevin,

Your sysout shows that you do have the latest PTF which supports joinkeys. Here is a job which would give you the desired results.

step0100 - concatenate input 1, 2, and input 9 to SORTJNF1 and input 3 to SORTJNF2 and use joinkeys to overlay the first 8 bytes from input3 onto the record.

This will also create 2 files with a length of 255. FF2(will have the first 2 records and LL2 (will have the last 2 records)

Step0200 just concatenates all the files and does the replacing of x'15' with x'40'

Btw if ">>PRINTED XXXXXXXXXX ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS" is a constant value we can avoid all input 1,2,9 as we can create it from the input 3 file itself.

Skolusu,thanks for your latest post including solution. I'm away on holiday at the moment, so I am not in a position to test and confirm. I hope to be able to do that early next week. Re INPUT3 which you referred to, this is the file containing the date which is overlaid on line 2. This date value is maintained by an entirely separate process. As far as this process is concerned it just reads it in from the specified location.
