I want to get the data from file1, with condition file1value less than file 2 value
Please help me to get this, I used join but not working

SORT FIELDS=COPY                      
JOINKEYS FILES=F1,FIELDS=(1,4,a)        
JOINKEYS FILES=F2,FIELDS=(1,4 ,a)        
REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,449,?,F2:1,4)    
INCLUDE COND=(1,4,BI,LT,451,4,BI)

What is not working? How is it not working? Is this the only attempt that you have made?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards
Nic

This is not helpful. You need to explain clearly what you are trying to achieve. What format is your input? What is the DCB info for the datasets?

You show e.g. 201903 which is a 6-byte field and your sort control cards specify 4-byte fields to be treated as BI. Is this input in zoned-decimal (ZD) format or are you showing binary values from 4-byte fields?

What is your desired result? You say
I want to get the data from file1, with condition file1value less than file 2 value
Which value ? All your 4-byte fields as shown have the same value in both datasets. Bytes 5 & 6 are the only differences and these are not mentioned in your control cards. Why do you need a JOIN ? Is there only one record in the second dataset or can there be multiple records?

Can you show any of your failing jobs?

  JOINKEYS FILES=F2,FIELDS=(1,2,A,3,2,A)                          
  REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,449,?,F2:1,4)                            
  INCLUDE COND=(1,4,BI,EQ,451,4)

Only part of the DCB provided.... are these datasets FB or VB ? If VB, you haven't allowed for the 4-byte RDW at the start of the record.

You've posted in the DFSORT forum but are using SYNCSORT - which is a competitor product and has a separate section. Try posting in the correct location in future.

You haven't shown anything from a failing job? The JCL, control cards and any output would be useful. You haven't said what your expected output should look like.
Please supply all relevent information when posting. which records should be output and where are you outputting these? Your INCLUDE might just output the "joined" records.

Garry.
