Alternating recs from multiple input files to one output fil

I want to have multiple input files. The input files should alternate being written to ONE output file. So it should look something like this Input File 1: 1 2 3 Input File 2: A B C Output File: 1 A 2 B 3 C (In the past I have attached a sequence number to the input recs, sort on the sequence number...

Put paragraph name into a variable

Hi I was wondering if there is a way to put a paragraph name into a variable. There has to be a better way than how I am doing it. Right now Im doing MOVE "1000-PARAGRAPH-NAME" TO WS-HOLD-NAME. I want avoid having to move 1000-PARAGRAPH-NAME, and have it done automatically. Like this: WORKING-STORAG...

Can you show me the code with the example I gave. Im just not getting how the fields are getting sorted. Under normal circumstances I could research this, however, I have to present this idea soon. Like I said though, I'm not all the familiar with SORT, or JCL. Im really confused about the BUILD con...

Oh wow. Ive never done any of that before. My experience with JCL is pretty basic.

Can you show the code for that?

After talking to a coworker about this topic, what I want to be cant be done.
You can only have one sort field per sort card.
I will have to create a different sort card for each file and work with them separately.
So first I will filter my data into separate files, then sort each file individually.

Sorry William, I wrote the example to be simple but in actuality the data I will be working with won't be. I will be working with many different files. They will need to be sorted on more than one criteria. Some will need to be sorted by name, other by date, time, etc. And even in combinations. I ho...

Sort and filter a file into multiple files using 1 sort card

** Please show code in your explanation ** Hi, If I have an input file I want to be able to split the data into multiple output, and as it splits the data I want it to also sort the data. So my files would be: INPUT.FILE1 OUTPUT.FILE1 OUTPUT.FILE2 Inside my input file is the following data REC1 XXX ...

Ive used SORT to get the header, I saw an example on another website. I was trying the ICETOOL example they provided but kept getting a RC=20. Code: //MY0001 EXEC PGM=SORT //SORTIN DD DSN=FILE.INPUT //SORTOUT DD DSN=FILE.OUTPUT //SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=* //SYSIN DD * SORT FIELDS=(1,15,CH,A) OUTFIL FNAMES=...

Create a title header for a report

I would like to create a report header using JCL. The forum isn't allowing me to keep the spacing so just assume that the details line up with the headers. And number 1 is most important! 1) So if my input file has a LRECL of 132 and has the following data: John Smith 01 19 2001 M B+ My output file ...
