Are you saying that a SORT solution would be OK, or does it need to be a Cobol solution?

In SORT, look up "sum" in your manual.

You do need to know which one to keep, whether you need to accumulate data...

In Cobol, keeping first if duplicate and no accumulation

Have a WS field to store your key in. Initial value of HIGH-VALUES.

Having read an input record, test against saved key. If equal, ignore processing so another is read.
When writing, store current key in WS key defined above.

Different outline code is needed depending on the specifics of your requirement.

OK, so read the second part of my post and see if there is anything unclear.

How long is he 'key' that you want to match on? Define a PIC X of that length, with VALUE HIGH-VALUES. Ensure you have a definition of the whole key in the record area.

After the read, test if these two keys are equal. If so, ignore the current record and otherwise continue. Where you get to write a record, save that key in the WS defined. Not really much to it. The "tricky" bit would be neatly ignoring-and-reading-next.

Where would I find the time to do that for you?

You need an enormously simple Cobol program which reads a file and writes to a seperate file. Then you need to include the logic outlined.

Have you got a course book? Course notes? Search on the internet for a sample reading/writing program?

what kind of stupid request/requirement/expectation is that ? :evil:

answering is on/based
our time
free of charge
the benevolence factor earned by the TS
interest of the topic
attitude of the TS

in other words if, when, how, we feel appropriate

... the topic is boring,
... Your attitude ( urgency claim ) irritating like sanded toilet paper
... which means benevolence factor close to 0

chances of getting benevolent replies close to 0

if You have time constraint You might want to peruse a different type of consultancy ( FEE )

and finally if You had searched the forums You would have found quite a few hints on how to proceed
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

Hello,

pls help me in solving dis qs
First - lose the kiddie-chat-speak. Use real words and sentences.

edit me for da code changes for eliminating duplicates.. plase need it very urgent.. thanks billy in advance
We don't do urgent. And it is pretty much a guarantee that this (class?) exercise is not critical to an organization.

pls change modifications for eliminating duplicates.
This forum intends to help you learn - NOT do your work for you.

If you are stuck, you need to explain where you are stuck. Someone will be able to offere suggestions. . .
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
