Ok, go for it ;)

When you have questions with your code, post the part of the code where you have questions and someone will be able to help. For starters, you know you need to code definitions for the qsam and vsam files as well as whatever is required to show the needed output.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

So, you need to define the 3 files (2 input and the report output). This would be 3 FDs with appropriate elementary level field definitions and some working storage definitions for accumulators, control breaks and report headings.

Then you need the actual code to open the files, read the first sequentially, the vsam randomly, and thd process to create the report and accumulate the totals.

Now it is time for you to code and test.

When something is not working, post pack here with what you have and what is not working.

Obviously, others should not ost code unless it is to help you work on code you have already posted.

The forum is to help you learn, not do the assignment for you.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

Until you more clearly describe the problem, we will not be able to help much.

Telling us "it is not working" does not provide any information for us to use to help you.

If you have some code that compiles and executes (even if incorrectly), you can add some diagnostic code (maybe some diaplay statements) to your program to find where problems exist.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
