Merge 2 records into single, involves reformating too

Postby hariharan_bk » Thu Oct 09, 2014 7:18 pm

Hi Team,

I need to merge 2 records into one single record. Could you please help

INPUT: (VB/120)
First record:
There are 59 bytes which remain as spaces from position 50. And we will have date at the end.
second record:
This record will have data (non spaces ex:HH) for those 59 bytes.

********************************* Top of Data **********************************
DTL,XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXX.CXXXX.ITEXXXX.INPXX  ,                    20141004,   
                                                 HHHHHHHHHHHHHH,
******************************** Bottom of Data ********************************


Output expected: (VB/120)
These 2 input records are to be merged to get the complete merged single record
********************************* Top of Data **********************************
DTL,XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXX.CXXXX.ITEXXXX.INPXX  ,  HHHHHHHHHHHHHH, 20141004,   
******************************** Bottom of Data ********************************


Code I tried which dint work yet:
 SORT FIELDS=COPY                                               
 INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,RECORDS=2,PUSH=(121:SEQ=1,50,59)),     
 IFTHEN=(WHEN=(121,1,ZD,EQ,2),BUILD=(1,4,5,45,50:122,59,109,12))
 OUTFIL BUILD=(1,120)                                           


Program used:
//STEP111 EXEC PGM=SORT

The job ran fine but output is not as expected. Could someone pls check and advise us back.
Many Thanks,
Harry

Why should they? You know you have syncsort. You know there is another section of the forum for syncsort queries but you ignore that and post in a rival company's section. I could, of course, simply delete the topic but I will move it for you.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards

For variable-length records, it is usual to extend for temporary fields at the beginning of the record. That's just to emphasise "usually", at it doesn't matter here.

The first record has A blank C, the second blank B blank. If you PUSH A into the location it came from, similar with C, then when you look at the second record it will have A B C. Remove the second IFTHEN, put INCLUDE= for 2 on the OUTFIL, and you should be about there.
