This paper is a mini-user guide for DFSORT’s versatile ICETOOL data objective is to show you how to use DFSORT’s ICETOOL to accomplish complex tasks. DFSORT is a powerful IBM utility used to copy, sort or merge datasets. SORTIN and SORTINnn DD statements are used to specify input datasets. SORTOUT and . Following Figure shows the Normal Layout of a ICETOOL job: // DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=* –> This is where the DFSORT messages.

Only the header and trailer kept in place and rest of the data is sorted. Note that 1st column is occupied by the printing carriage control character. In the ON clause we tugorial specify the format in which data will be displayed.
This prints the values that occur more than once. BLANK replaces all the leading zeros. ON indicates the column for ictool unique must be found. Prints the values that occur more than times.
Also note that both the titles are printed. For example, a file containing names of employees can be split into 26 files, each containing the names starting with A, B, C and so on.
All unique records will be copied to another datasets. It can compare two or more files on specified field s and create one or more output files like file with matching records, file with non-matching records, etc.
Raj kumar Bhakthavachalam 4 September at Used to return control to user and terminate. Numeric fields with usage COMP We could any of the existing masks.
Note the format is decided as follows: Matthew McKenzie 8 August at It is usually used to create empty dataset or delete an existing dataset. The string tutoriql is also printed before the value is printed.
TLEFT to print the title left justified. The ones that occur only 1 time are not printed.
This will copy records from 1 to 99 and then the last record. Frequently used sort tricks using these utilities are explained in the next chapter. Tutoriaal programs are pre-written programs, widely used in mainframes by system programmers and application developers to achieve day-to-day requirements, organising and maintaining data. ON indicates the fields to be displayed on the report.
Thanx a lot Wolfgang. That is the values that appear only once. Note that only the column we mentioned in ON is printed in the report.
Usually used to manage VSAM datasets. Ashwani Sharma 24 November at List indicates the output dataset. Below prints the values that occur more than times. Also note that icwtool the above figure the title is being printed every page.
Usually, this is not recommended in view of performance for large files. TEXT is used to decide the text to be written before the count. We can specify NOCC to override default of printing carriage control characters. These utility programs need tytorial be used with appropriate DD statements in a JCL in order to achieve the specified functionality.
