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.

The ones that occur only 1 time are not printed. TLEFT to print the title left justified.

Raj kumar Bhakthavachalam 4 September at Used to return control to user and terminate. Is tutorixl formatting purpose. Used to copy selected parts of a JCL.

Using the ICETOOL utility

That is the values that appear only once. List indicates the output dataset.

We can turn off that display using NOCC. 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. The string within is also printed before the value is printed. Above means keep the records from input file from record numbers to tutrial Matthew McKenzie 8 August at Ashwani Sharma 24 November at TEXT is used to decide the text to be written before the count. Note the format is decided as follows: It is usually used to create empty dataset or delete an existing dataset.


Numeric fields with usage COMP ON indicates the column for which unique must be found. Posted by cobolbasics at This giving us a sample records for testing.

Frequently used sort tricks using these utilities are explained in the ivetool chapter. We can specify NOCC to override default of printing carriage control characters.

Tutogial unique records will be copied to another datasets. See the Use of Edit patterns. This displays the count of records having field 36,2,ZD greater than Below prints the values that occur more than times. Thanx a lot Wolfgang. Above shows the unique values in the column 5,8,ZD. A few of them are listed below with their functionality:. Note that only the iceetool we mentioned in ON is printed in the report. Usually, this is not recommended in view of performance for large files.

Usually used to manage VSAM datasets. BLANK icettool all the leading zeros. Create, delete, rename, catalog, uncatalog datasets other than PDS.

These utility programs need to be used with appropriate DD statements in a JCL tutoriao order to achieve the specified functionality. A File can be split into n files based on a specified condition. Following can be used to remove duplicates from a file and save it to another file. This will copy records from 1 to 99 and then the last record. This prints the values that occur more than once.

Numeric fields with usage COMP: Prints the values that occur more than times. Also note that in the above figure the title is being ttuorial every page.

Input and output datasets icetoop be defined using user defined DD names. It gives best utilization of system resources and efficient operation in bit and bit address spaces.

Utility 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.

We could any of the existing masks.
