Time Comparison using SORT in JCL

Post by SixStep006 » Thu May 05, 2016 7:41 pm

I have a record with data over time and the time is captured now and then. eg:

wre 1250 tod now
rcte 1340 ehe doe
ddg 1320 geg the

the time is in julian and the record is over 200 lines. I need a sort to compare the current time with the time in the record and pull data only for the next 1 hour.

for example: if the current time is 1300 I need the sort to pull only data from 13:00 to 14:00 .

Kindly guide me. Thanks a lot
