JCL to fetch a record from a dataset

Postby pavan.kanugo » Wed Mar 26, 2008 7:17 pm

hai,
i am trying to fetch those records where the name field starts with a specified character, and store them to another flat file. Can anybody suggest me a solution, also i am stating the details of the problem.

for example assume my flat file layout is as following

Emp-id Emp-Name Salary Employer project

i would like to copy those records whose name starts with say 'a'

thanks and regards.....

What is the problem?? What did you try and where you stuck??

This requires a simple INCLUDE COND statement.

SYSIN should read:
SORT FIELDS=COPY
INCLUDE COND=(starting_position,1,CH,EQ,C'A')


Read the examples in the link.

I would request you to read the DFSORT getting started from

Also the programming guide from
