Within a group of 10 records having identical keys, I need to write this particular key to a output file when column 124 is equal to space for all occourances of this records in the input file. :(

Please show an example of your input records (relevant fields only) and what you expect for output. Explain the "rules" for getting from input to output. Give the RECFM and LRECL of the input file. Give the starting position, length and format of each relevant field.

It's much easier for somebody to help you when you take the time to give the details of what you want to do. We can't read your mind. :)
