The only way you'll get an F REFORMAT record with what you have coded is with at least F1 being Fixed.

But even if i indicating my files are of type V.
JOINKEYS F1=IN1,FIELDS=(1,7,A),TYPE=V
JOINKEYS F2=IN2,FIELDS=(1,7,A),TYPE=V


I am getting same error & same reason code. & My both input files are of type V. My outfile is also of Type V.

What i have done? I am telling you that first i have created two input files & one output file by using 3.2 & RECFM=V. Then i have inserted the data into those files. After that i am using the code which i have posted.
If somewhere i've made the mistake, please let me know.

I am telling you that first i have created two input files & one output file by using 3.2 & RECFM=V.
So what? The SYSTEM is telling you the files are fixed length -- and I am going to believe the system a whole lot more than anything you say. The computer does not lie to you. You may THINK you created variable length records, but somehow something has converted them to fixed length.

Furthermore, if you are dealing with variable length files, why are you not starting your records at position 5 to bypass the record descriptor word -- the way the SORT manuals tell you to?

Use 3.2 or 'I' against the datasets in 3.4 and show us the results.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I can only echo Robert and Nic and repeat what I said before.

No matter what you think, your F1 dataset, at least, is Fixed-length, not variable.

If you look up what TYPE=V does, you'll know you can safely delete it until you need it for a completely different situation.

If i code:
REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:5,76,F2:5)
JOIN UNPAIRED,F1,F2
OPTION COPY
OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT,BUILD=(5,80,85,80)


Problem TYPE=F has been solved. Now i am getting only one problem in SYSOUT
ICE411I 0 THIS IS THE JOINKEYS MAIN TASK FOR JOINING F1 AND F2                 
ICE416I 0 JOINKEYS IS USING THE F1 SUBTASK FOR IN1      - SEE JNF1JMSG MESSAGES
ICE416I 1 JOINKEYS IS USING THE F2 SUBTASK FOR IN2      - SEE JNF2JMSG MESSAGES
ICE412A 0 REFORMAT REQUIRES RDW IN FIRST FIELD                                 
ICE751I 0 C5-K62149 C6-K90026 C7-K58148 E7-K70685                             
ICE052I 3 END OF DFSORT                                                       


But If i put REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:5,76,F2:5,76) like this again I have got the same TYPE=F problem.
ICE419I 0 JOINED RECORDS: TYPE=F, LENGTH=152         
ICE201I H RECORD TYPE IS F - DATA STARTS IN POSITION 1


I think, i am doing some mistake in the REFORMAT FIELDS. Thanks Robert, Billy, NicC!
