Posted: Thu Jul 21, 2011 7:12 pm Post subject: concatenate of data sets
to concatenate PS(physical sequential) data sets we can use the ibm utility
and specify the files in this way
//JOB1 JOB .....................
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSUT1 DD DSN="FILE1",DISP=SHR,
//SYSUT2 DD DSN="NEWFILE",DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE)
where record length should be file1(rec len)> file2(rec len)> file3(reclen)
the result is stored in output file NEW FILE
we cannot concatenate PDS(partitioned data set) files.as they have members
any query :mail me at email@example.com
