Read 2 files using sort

Postby mail2rr » Mon Apr 14, 2014 12:32 am

I have 2 files. Need to read the file 1 for item number and file 2 which also has item number. If the number match then check in file 2 whether the date field is non zero. if its zero the update the file 2 with the date from file 1. If the date is non-zero no action required just write the record from the file to output file.

we have 2 input and one output file. Can you please suggest what is the best way to implement using SORT?

Look at JOINKEYS. It is well documented, and there are many examples here, as well as in the manual.
