Postby Vineet » Tue Dec 06, 2011 3:16 am

I am describing my Problem along with the Conditions. I am Having 2 Sequential Files File A (LRECL = 277, RECFM = FB) & File B (LRECL=500, RECFM=FB). Both the Files are Sorted on Item Number Field. For File A Item Number = 94,6 & for File B = 1,6. Below is my Requirement.

1. If Item Number is Present in Both The Files & > 499999. All Records From File A to be Written To File C (O/P File, LRECL = 279, RECFM=FB) & Last Two Bytes 278,2 Need to Have Space.
2. If Item Number is Present in Both The Files & < 499999. All Records From File A to be Written To File C (O/P File, LRECL = 279, RECFM=FB) & Last Two Bytes 278,2 Need to Have Value from File B Starting (172,2)
3. If Item Number Present in File A But Not in File and > 499999 OR < 499999 OR = 499999 All Records From File A to be Written To File C (O/P File, LRECL = 279, RECFM=FB) & Last Two Bytes 278,2 Need to Have Space.

Note: Output File C Should have Length = 279 i.e. Length of File A + 2 Bytes Extra at the End. I have Raised a Similar Query, as Requirement is Changed so mailing U. Below is the JCL I wrote. I am Getting Error Please Correct me.

JCL:

JOINKEYS F1=IN1,FIELDS=(94,6,A)
JOINKEYS F2=IN2,FIELDS=(1,6,A)
JOIN UNPAIRED,F1
REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,278,?,F2:172,2)
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(278,1,CH,EQ,C'B',AND,94,6,ZD,GT,499999),

OVERLAY=(278:2X))
SORT FIELDS = (94,6,ZD,A)
OUTREC BUILD=(1,279)

ERROR:

I appreciate UR Help.

CE414A 0 IN1 (F1) REFORMAT FIELD END AT 278 IS BEYOND LENGTH OF 277

This error message seems pretty clear. You have:

REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,278,?,F2:172,2)

So you are asking for positions 1-278 from F1, but F1 has an LRECL of only 277 so it should be 1,277, not 1,278.

REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,277,?,F2:172,2)

So your reformat positions would be:

1-277: F1 positions 1-277
278: ? - indicator
279-280: F2 positions 172-173

I'm guessing something like this would do what you want, although I haven't actually tested it:

   JOINKEYS F1=IN1,FIELDS=(94,6,A)                             
   JOINKEYS F2=IN2,FIELDS=(1,6,A)                             
   JOIN UNPAIRED,F1                                             
   REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,277,?,F2:172,2) 
   SORT FIELDS = (94,6,ZD,A)                 
   OUTREC IFOUTLEN=279,
      IFTHEN=(WHEN=(278,1,CH,EQ,C'B',AND,94,6,ZD,LT,499999),
               BUILD=(1,277,278:279,2)),
      IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,BUILD=(1,277,278:2X))

Hi Frank,

Thanks for the Help. As Suggested I made the Required Changes but I am not getting the Desire Result. Below am Present my JCL along with Data & Expected O/P.

File A: Item Number = 000008, Position 94,6. LRECL = 277, RECFM=FB. - Input File
File B: Item Number = 000008, Position 01,6. LRECL = 1200, RECFM=FB. - Input File
File C: All Data From File A, Along With 2 Bytes Appearing in Position 172,2 Of File B. Addiional Field Should Appear In the Last. In My Case Record Appearing in File B at Position is 16 So Final O/P
<------------ File A Records (277 Bytes) -------------><16 (2 Bytes From File B)>. I am Getting Space. Attributes for File C = LRECL = 279, RECFM = FB.

JOINKEYS F1=IN1,FIELDS=(94,6,A)
JOINKEYS F2=IN2,FIELDS=(1,6,A)
JOIN UNPAIRED,F1
REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,277,?,F2:172,2)
SORT FIELDS=(94,6,ZD,A)
OUTREC IFOUTLEN=279,
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(278,1,CH,EQ,C'B',AND,94,6,ZD,GT,499999),
BUILD=(1,277,278:2X)),
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(278,1,CH,EQ,C'B',AND,94,6,ZD,LE,499999),
BUILD=(1,277,278:279,2)), -----------------------------------------> A
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(278,1,CH,EQ,C'1',AND,94,6,ZD,LE,499999),
BUILD=(1,277,278:279,2)),
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(278,1,CH,EQ,C'1',AND,94,6,ZD,GT,499999),
BUILD=(1,277,278:279,2))

Please Suggest. As Per The Requirment, Condition Which is Satisfied is Marked As A. Is there any Limit of Using IFTHEN Or If we are having Multiple Instance of IFTHEN we Need to Have WHEN=NONE

Vineet: you ARE aware, I hope, that the IBM SORT group is on the West Coast of the U.S., and it is not yet 8 AM Tuesday morning there?

vineet,

You need to explain what is NOT working for you instead of a blanket statement , "It doesn't work" as we can neither see your input or output or read your mind. However I see a couple of errors in your control cards

When you don't have a matching record there is nothing to populate in the last 2 bytes. The match indicator will be 1 in this case and you don't have to code an IFTHEN statement for each and every condition. You also don't have to SORT the input file once again after the JOIN.

Use the following JCL which will give you the desired results.

[code]
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//INA      DD DSN=Your input FB 0277 byte file,DISP=SHR
//INB      DD DSN=Your input FB 1200 byte file,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//SYSIN    DD *                                         
  OPTION COPY                                           
  JOINKEYS F1=INA,FIELDS=(94,6,A)                       
  JOINKEYS F2=INB,FIELDS=(01,6,A)                       
  JOIN UNPAIRED,F1                                       
  REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,277,F2:172,2,?),FILL=C' '       
 
  INREC IFOUTLEN=279,                                   
  IFTHEN=(WHEN=(280,1,CH,EQ,C'B',AND,94,6,ZD,GT,499999),
  OVERLAY=(278:2X))

Hi KOLUSU,
Thanks for Quick Reply. I am Sorry For Icomplete Information. Let me Explain you my Requirement & Issue I am Facing. I am having 2 Sequential Files File A (LRECL = 277, RECFM = FB) ANd File B (LRECL = 1204,RECFM = FB). Both File Having Item Number as Key Field. For File A Item Number Start Position (94,6) And For File B Item Number Start Position (1,6). Need to Write The O/P After Comparision to File C Having Lrecl = 279 & RECFM = FB. File C is Having Same Attribute as File A, In Addition 2 Bytes Extra at The Last Position 278 - 279. Where We Need To Write Value from File B.
We need to Write The Records To O/P File From File A, Along with 2 Additional Bytes which is Based on the Below Listed Criteria.

1. If Item Number Present in Both The Files & Item and Item Number > 499999, Last 2 Bytes of File C(O/P) Should Have Spaces.
2. If Item Number Present in Both The Files & Item and Item Number < 499999, Last 2 Bytes of File C(O/P) Should Have Value From File B, For Which Start Position is 172,2.
3. If Item Present in File A Only & Not Present in File B. If Item Number > 499999 Or < 499999 Last 2 BYtes Should have Spaces.
4. If Item present in File A & File B And Item Number = 499999, O/P File Should Have Value From File B, For Which Start Position is 172,2.

Issue I was Facing That To the O/P File I am Able to Write The Records from File A, Where as Last 2 Bytes Always Appearing as Blank (Space). Solution What U suggested is Not Giving the desire O/P, Its Printing 'C' And Spaces Instead of Value Appearing for 172,2. I am Presenting Below Example.

File A: Item Number = 000008, Position 94,6. LRECL = 277, RECFM=FB. - Input File
File B: Item Number = 000008, Position 01,6. LRECL = 1204, RECFM=FB. - Input File
File C: All Data From File A, Along With 2 Bytes Appearing in Position 172,2 Of File B. Additional Field Should Appear In the Last. In My Case Record Appearing in File B at Position is 16 So Final O/P
<------------ File A Records (277 Bytes) -------------><16 (2 Bytes From File B)>. I am Getting Space. Attributes for File C = LRECL = 279, RECFM = FB.

I Hope I am Clear. If ANy Query / Concern please Do let me Know.

Thanks
Kind Rgds.

Your 1st post

File B (LRECL=500, RECFM=FB)

Your 2nd post

File B: LRECL = 1200, RECFM=FB. - Input File

Your 3rd post

File B: LRECL = 1204, RECFM=FB. - Input File


It is amazing how your file B attributes changes with every post. Are sure that your input is FB and NOT VB?

Post the contents of the key (1,6) and contents from pos 172, 2 of file B or better yet show us the output from JNF2MSG sysout and we will figure out if your input is FB or VB

I am Getting Required O/P, I rectified my error. Thanks for Help. but I am getting one Extra Character 'C' Please Refer below. Here 16 is the Actual Value appearing in File B Position 172,2. Regarding C I am not Sure. How To Remove C.

And the error is?

If your input had C and space for the item number 0000000001 you obviously will get the same in your output. Are you telling me that your input file B does not have C & space in pos 172 in your input file B for the item number 0000000001?
