How to overlay a text on particular record using Sync sort?

Postby venkatapetchetti » Wed Jul 15, 2009 12:38 am

Hi,

The attached file will have input and output format of my requirement. The input and output files are LRECL=133 and FBA. Could you help me how we can code using sync sort. Thanks

Venkat

I don't understand your requirement. Are these header and trailer records? Do you simply want another trailer record inserted just before the last line?

In the file '1' indicates the begining of the each record. The every 8th record after 1(ie, 9th record including 1st record) should have 'Report' from 11th column. Let me know still you have any questions.

Thanks

Thank you for the clarification. It now makes sense. This SyncSort for z/OS 1.3 job should give you the requested results:
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN  DD DSN=Input.File,DISP=SHR  (FBA/133)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=Output.File
//SYSIN   DD *                                                       
   SORT FIELDS=COPY                                                   
   OUTREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,BEGIN=(1,1,CH,EQ,C'1'),PUSH=(134:SEQ=3)),
          IFTHEN=(WHEN=(134,3,ZD,EQ,9),BUILD=(1,10,C'REPORT',17,116)),
          IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,BUILD=(1,133))

Do you know why am I getting the below error?
SYSIN :

*
PUSH=(134:SEQ=3)),
IFTHEN=(WHEN=(134,3,ZD,EQ,9),BUILD=(1,11,C'REPORT',17,116)),
IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,BUILD=(1,133))

Support for WHEN=GROUP was included in SyncSort for z/OS 1.3.2. Are you running an older release of SyncSort?

Hello,

Sorry, but if your organization is not willing to install the current release of the software, why should people waste time working on an already out-dated solution.

If the organization is unwilling to upgrade, maybe they should face the expense of writing their own code. . . :?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
