How Can I Separate one file in others files

Postby pulcinella » Wed Dec 26, 2007 1:36 pm


I need separate one file in other files. The 1.000 first records write in the first file, the 1.000 next in the two file. I don't know which are the record's of my file

File1: 1....... 9.000 records

fileOutput: 1... 1.000
fileOutput2: 1.001 .... 2.000 ...
FileOutputX : 8.001 .... 9.000 (or end the file)

Here's an example of a DFSORT job that will split the input file to 12 output files. You can change the job to use as many output files as you need.

//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//OUT001 DD DSN=...  output file 1
//OUT002 DD DSN=...  output file 2
//OUT003 DD DSN=...  output file 3
//OUT004 DD DSN=...  output file 4
//OUT005 DD DSN=...   output file 5
//OUT006 DD DSN=...  output file 6
//OUT007 DD DSN=...  output file 7
//OUT008 DD DSN=...  output file 8
//OUT009 DD DSN=...  output file 9
//OUT010 DD DSN=...  output file 10
//OUT011 DD DSN=...   output file 11
//OUT012 DD DSN=...  output file 12
