Merge records using SPLICE

Postby nikesh_rai » Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:11 pm

Hi,

I am trying to merge two recs from the same input file using SPLICE. My input is:

9 WXXX-BAA-ID                     GROUP          3      1      19      19
  12 WXXX-UAA-BAA-ID              GROUP          4      1      19      19
    15 WXXX-EAAAA-ID              GROUP          5      1      16      16
      18 WXXX-EAAAA-FAAA-IAAAAA                                             0001  0001
                                  X(8)           6      1       8       8   0001  0002
      18 WXXX-EAAAA-RAA-SAA-NAA                                             0002  0001
                                  9(8)           7      9      16       8   0002  0002
    15 WXXX-BAA-SAA-NAA           S9(4)          8     17      19       3


and my expected out put is:

9 WXXX-BAA-ID                     GROUP          3      1      19      19
  12 WXXX-UAA-BAA-ID              GROUP          4      1      19      19
    15 WXXX-EAAAA-ID              GROUP          5      1      16      16
      18 WXXX-EAAAA-FAAA-IAAAAA   X(8)           6      1       8       8
      18 WXXX-EAAAA-RAA-SAA-NAA   9(8)           7      9      16       8
    15 WXXX-BAA-SAA-NAA           S9(4)          8     17      19       3
 


but the output is coming as

9 WXXX-BAA-ID                     GROUP          3      1      19      19
  12 WXXX-UAA-BAA-ID              GROUP          4      1      19      19
    15 WXXX-EAAAA-ID              GROUP          5      1      16      16
                                  X(8)           6      1       8       8
                                  9(8)           7      9      16       8
 


My code is :

//STEP003  EXEC PGM=ICETOOL                                    
//INDD     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=&&TEMP02

//TOOLIN   DD *                                                
  SPLICE FROM(INDD) TO(OUTDD) ON(81,4,CH) WITHALL KEEPNODUPS -
         WITH(1,39) WITH(40,40) USING(CTL1)                    
//CTL1CNTL DD *                                                
  OPTION COPY                                                  
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(86,4,ZD,EQ,0001),OVERLAY=(01:01,39)),    
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(86,4,ZD,EQ,0002),OVERLAY=(40:40,39))    
  OUTFIL BUILD=(1:1,39,40:40,40)
/*                              


I am using this ICETOOL first time.. so cannot identify where is the issue here in this code..

Billy.. I checked your link as well..

dfsort-icetool-icegener/topic7483.html#p34164

First, can you confirm whether you are using DFSORT or SyncSort, please?

SPLICE is complex. With what you have shown, it takes me too much time to understand what you are trying to do. Can you include more explanation?

You can "pass" data from one record to the next with WHEN=GROUP and PUSH. Did you consider that approach?

Thanks Billy..

Its DFSORT, I have checked with When=Group.. and used SPLICE as well its working now..

Here is the code for ref:

//STEP004  EXEC PGM=ICETOOL                                           
//INDD     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=&&TEMP03                                   
//OUT01    DD DSN=&&TMP1,DISP=(NEW,PASS),SPACE=(TRK,(10,10),RLSE),     
//            UNIT=SYSDA,DCB=(*.INDD)                                 
//OUT02    DD DSN=&&TMP2,DISP=(NEW,PASS),SPACE=(TRK,(10,10),RLSE),     
//            UNIT=SYSDA,DCB=(*.INDD)                                 
//OUT03    DD DSN=&&TMP3,DISP=(NEW,PASS),SPACE=(TRK,(10,10),RLSE),     
//            UNIT=SYSDA,DCB=(*.INDD)                                 
//*OUTDD    DD DSN=DPFCB.D393990.LAYOUT.FMTD,                         
//*            DISP=(OLD,CATLG,DELETE),SPACE=(TRK,(10,10),RLSE),       
//*            UNIT=SYSDA,DCB=(*.INDD)                                 
//*OUT03    DD SYSOUT=*                                               
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//DFSMSG   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//TOOLIN   DD *                                                       
  COPY FROM(INDD) TO(OUT01) USING(CTL1)                               
  COPY FROM(INDD) TO(OUT02) USING(CTL2)                               
  SPLICE FROM(OUT02) TO(OUT03) ON(81,4,ZD) WITH(40,40) KEEPNODUPS     
//CTL1CNTL DD *                                                       
  OPTION COPY                                                         
  INCLUDE COND=(86,4,CH,EQ,C' ')                                     
//CTL2CNTL DD *                                                       
  OPTION COPY                                                         
  INCLUDE COND=(86,4,CH,NE,C' ')


I have used when=group just before this step.. to identify the double line records as a single record for processing.. It is working as per expectation.. :)

That is NOT sysout. Sysout contains the DFSort messages produced in the run.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

One more issue is there..

I have added one more step to format the record...

SORT FIELDS=(91,4,CH,A)   
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(1,39,SQZ=(SHIFT=LEFT)))
OUTREC PARSE=(%01=(ABSPOS=1,STARTAT=C'W',FIXLEN=35)),   
       BUILD=(1:%01,40,40)           


I am not getting what is the problem with STARTAT here. SYSOUT is coming as blank.. but when I used ENDBEFR=C' ', It was working. actaully I don't want these numbers here:

9 WXXX-BAA-ID                     GROUP          3      1      19      19
  12 WXXX-UAA-BAA-ID              GROUP          4      1      19      19
    15 WXXX-EAAAA-ID              GROUP          5      1      16      16
      18 WXXX-EAAAA-FAAA-IAAAAA   X(8)           6      1       8       8
      18 WXXX-EAAAA-RAA-SAA-NAA   9(8)           7      9      16       8
    15 WXXX-BAA-SAA-NAA           S9(4)          8     17      19       3         


and expecting output as:

WXXX-BAA-ID                     GROUP          3      1      19      19
WXXX-UAA-BAA-ID                 GROUP          4      1      19      19
WXXX-EAAAA-ID                   GROUP          5      1      16      16
WXXX-EAAAA-FAAA-IAAAAA          X(8)           6      1       8       8
WXXX-EAAAA-RAA-SAA-NAA          9(8)           7      9      16       8
WXXX-BAA-SAA-NAA                S9(4)          8     17      19       3


is there anything wrong with the STARTAT.. ??
Thanks

Thanks for letting us know. What is the ABSPOS=1 doing for you?
