i can give you hint for ur question
first we have to take two input files and one outputfile
select infile assignto ****,select infile1 assing to****
select outfile assign to****
organization clause i s sequential......access mode is sequential
open input infile
open input infile1
read infile at end display 'not found'
read infile1 at end display 'not found'
close infile
close infile1
or u can write open infile, and open infile1 separate separately
then u have t compare with if statement
and so on...... here u hadn't mentioned wht to compare i think we have to take third file as array so this is up my mark rest u can try if any thing went wrong plz correct me.
thank you
