MAINFRAME - TIP OF THE DAY :
When you specified V for RECFM parameter, LRECL value is largest record in the file plus 4 bytes. These four bytes contain the actual length of each variable length record in the file

that is, writing on a same output file the selected records of different "include/outrec" statements.
it seems to me it isn't possible. the code above got a systax error. i tried other ways too, but none gave me the result i need.
could someone help, please?
the point is that i'll have input records that match many "include" and, so, are written in many different outputs.
after i write the records in different outputs on step1, i join them all in a single file with an iebgener on step2. what i'd like to do is to eliminate the need of step2, writing the final file directly on step1.
I think the only realistic way to avoid the multiple OUTFILs and a second step in this type of situation is for you to write an E35 SORT Exit. This can be in COBOL. It can be very simple, and you should be able to get multiple records from a single record.
