3.12 SuperC Compare Utility ? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocente ... supere.htm
If you choose Batch you can get the jcl generated.
I can explain it to you, but i can not understand it for you.

do not double post, or as in this case ( probably ) click once
and do not hit the back button of Your browser, most often it will cause a double post

it' s bothering to have to read two threads to understand what is going on

I already asked for additional information here and I will not switch to Your other post on the same issue

Hello,

If the files are not in the same order, the results of the compare will be questionable at best. . .
Hope this helps,

As per my reply to the duplicate thread...

The logic is the same as for when the files are in sorted order BUT... first you have to sort the files.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards

Okay, Your question is in JCL part of the Forum, so possibly you are looking for some JCL/Job executing some utility - so what are your choices?

And is it an interview question? If not, why do yo wnat to avoid sorting the files on some key?
