First - a title of 'sort' for your topic in the DFSORT part of the forum is not exactly a brief description of your problem.
Second - how do you get that output from that input? What are the rules? Why does 12345 become both asdff and ssssw and why does 72890 become sssss. And how does the 12dff, 12ssw and 72sss get into your output file and what do you want to replace them by? Also, what is the RECFM and LRECL of these file?
Thirdly - what have you tried so far? Show us your efforts. _________________ Regards
If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:

we cant do without using joinkeys frank.
I don't understand your question. Are you saying you can't use JOINKEYS? Or are you asking if there's another way to do it without JOINKEYS? If the latter, why do you need to do it without JOINKEYS?
I suppose it could be done with the SPLICE operator of DFSORT's ICETOOL if you can't use JOINKEYS. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - email@example.com
