Huh? How would you expect anyone to help you with this when you haven't given any clue as to what it is you actually want to do? You need to explain the "rules" you want to use for getting from input to output. You can't expect us to guess what you want or read your mind. You have to tell us.

I think - in output:

  • Last record of 2nd input-file is placed after first record of input-file-1 ("5" from input-file-2 comes after "1" from input-file-1 )
  • Second-last record of 2nd input-file is placed after second record of input-file-1("4" from input-file-2 comes after second-record, "2", from input-file-1 )
  • ... and so on...
Hope this helps.

Yes, that's a good guess and may be correct, but whey should we guess? We need the OP to tell us what HE wants. (Why should we spend time coming up with a solution that might not correspond to what is actually wanted?)

Hi Anuj & Frank,

The assumption is right. Can you please help on this.

Thanks

Given that assumption, here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will what you asked for. I added F1 and F2 to the input records to show the actual order of the output records.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//IN1 DD *
1 F1
2 F1
3 F1
4 F1
5 F1
/*
//IN2 DD *
1 F2
2 F2
3 F2
4 F2
5 F2
/*
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)
//OUT DD SYSOUT=*
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN1) TO(T1) USING(CTL1)
SORT FROM(IN2) TO(T1) USING(CTL2)
SORT FROM(T1) TO(OUT) USING(CTL3)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  OUTREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD,START=1,INCR=2)
/*
//CTL2CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,1,CH,D)
  OUTREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD,START=2,INCR=2)
/*
//CTL3CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(81,8,ZD,A)
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
/*


OUT would have:

Code:

1 F1       
5 F2       
2 F1       
4 F2       
3 F1       
3 F2       
4 F1       
2 F2       
5 F1       
1 F2

Here's an alternate way to do it if you have the DFSORT PTF for the MERGE operator:

Code:

//S2    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//IN1 DD *
1 F1
2 F1
3 F1
4 F1
5 F1
//IN2 DD *
1 F2
2 F2
3 F2
4 F2
5 F2
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(,PASS)
//T2 DD DSN=&&T2,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(,PASS)
//OUT DD SYSOUT=*
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN1) TO(T1) USING(CTL1)
SORT FROM(IN2) TO(T2) USING(CTL2)
MERGE FROM(T1,T2) TO(OUT) USING(CTL3)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  OUTREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD,START=1,INCR=2)
/*
//CTL2CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,1,CH,D)
  OUTREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD,START=2,INCR=2)
/*
//CTL3CNTL DD *
  MERGE FIELDS=(81,8,ZD,A)
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
/*
