Compare two file of different format

Postby Papya013 » Mon Dec 18, 2017 4:39 pm

Hi Team,

I have two files as mentioned below.

File1: Decimal format
File2: Hexa decimal format

I have data position which has to be compared.

Could you please let me know if its possible to compare the files of the above format. I am new to this type of SORT so please help/guide me.

Ok - you need to use JOINKEYS. Start reading. Expriment (but do not make up your own syntax) and come back with any difficulties that you have.

Next time you should provide sample data (both input and output) so that we can see what you mean because what you have written is more or less meaningless - all data is in hex - it is simply how you interpret the hex.

And they are data sets not files.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
