Check if header date is eq current date (MM/DD/YYYY)

Postby srajendran2 » Tue Jun 18, 2013 9:15 pm

I have a requirement to check if the header date is equivalent to current date. if it is not the rest of the processing should be skipped. The header date format is MM/DD/YYYY. I tried to use MD4. There is an error in the syntax. I think i have wrongly used the MD4 condition in the INCLUDE COND. PLease find below the code and error.

//ABCD1JA JOB (DWR,SYS999,TSO--TC3,TSTH,TSTH),             
//         MSGCLASS=X,REGION=4M,CLASS=A,NOTIFY=&SYSUID     
//*                                                         
//UCC11RMS  EXEC UCC11RMS,TYPRUN=P                         
//*                                                         
//SORT     EXEC PGM=SORT                                   
//SORTIN   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TSTH.AAAAAA.REXX.INPUT           
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=TSTH.DFSORT.OUTP,                         
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG),                           
//             UNIT=SYSDA,                                 
//             SPACE=(CYL,(400,400),RLSE)                   
//SYSIN DD *                                               
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                         
  INCLUDE COND=(1,10,CH,EQ,DATE=(MD4/))                     
/*                                     


Input is
05/31/2013
05/31/2013,BBBB,1,0.000000000,
05/31/2013,CCCC,3,0.000000000,
05/31/2013,DDDD,1,0.000000000,
05/31/2013,AAAA,4,0.000000000,

Do not post on multiple fora. The same people who respond on the other forum respond to this one.

And as it is syncsort why post under DFsort - a competing product?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
