SYNSORT: VSAM File with Comp-3

Postby kennardtan » Wed Dec 02, 2009 1:36 am


I would like to ask assistance for a syncsort.
I would like to include only those records with amount of 3212.25 on column 34-38. By the way the input file is a KSDS.

1. should my output file also be a VSAM? or is it ok to have a flat file?
2. how does the sysin look like? --> INCLUDE COND=(34,5,PD,EQ,3212.25)
3. how will i declare the sysout?

thank you so much for your assistance.

1. the output file should be whatever is needed. we cannot tell you this. what kind file depends on how it is to be used.

2. packed-decimal fields do not contain a decimal point. The decimal is implied.

3. sysout=* ? - it is not clear what you are asking.
Hope this helps,
