Copy a VB files to FB File

Postby nikesh_rai » Thu Jan 24, 2013 6:35 pm

Hi,

I want to copy a VB files to FB File, and want to retain the record length field in FB File.I have three input files having length 715,599 and 645. The output file will be of length 1000 and will contain the record length of each record followed by the record. in other word, i have to copy the file records as it is in a FB File.. I tried with the code given below only for one file:

//STEP001  EXEC PGM=SORT                                               
//SORTIN   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DPFCB84.C1207.C14T01.SVP022.SRTDBITS         
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=DPFCB84.C1207.C14T01.SVP022.SRTDBITS.FLN,             
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                                 
//            SPACE=(TRK,(10,10),RLSE),                                 
//            UNIT=SYSDA,                                               
//            DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=1000)                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSIN    DD *                                                         
  OPTION COPY                                                           
/*                                                                     


and getting the below error:

ICE805I 1 JOBNAME: D393990B , STEPNAME: STEP001                                 
ICE802I 0 BLOCKSET     TECHNIQUE IN CONTROL

VTOF is going to be your answer, so can you show how that didn't work for you?

Thanks Billy

I used this sysin card to convert VB to FB

//SYSIN    DD *                   
  OPTION COPY                     
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT,VTOF       
/*                                 


and getting the error

ICE201I H RECORD TYPE IS V - DATA STARTS IN POSITION 5                         
ICE805I 1 JOBNAME: D393990B , STEPNAME: STEP001

Hello,

I do not believe you can get what you want from a "simple copy" :(


For whatever reason, this went off in a new topic.

This is being locked.
