In this in my input file, 1000 is the maximum length of the file, but the total length was defines assuming that we might get additional data for that file.
When I tried to execute this match, I got my matched / extracted record to O/P file, but the o/p file is filled with X'FF' till the rest of the record after 1000 position. Could you please advise me what I missed here.

Your job is a mess!
Assuming you want output file1 to contain the records from F2 that have a match in F1, and you want output file2 to contain the records from F2 that do not have a match in F1, you can use the following DFSORT job:
If that's NOT what you're trying to do, then you need to explain more clearly what you are trying to do with an example of input and expected output. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - firstname.lastname@example.org
