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.

That is the values that appear only once. Below prints the values that occur more than times. See the Use of Edit patterns.
This prints the values that occur more than once. Note that 1st column is occupied by the printing carriage control character.
icetool: ICETOOL examples
A File can be split into n files based on a specified condition. 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. This giving us a sample records for testing. Frequently used sort tricks using these utilities are idetool in the next chapter.
Above means keep the records from titorial file from record numbers to Numeric fields with usage COMP: 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. Used to copy selected parts of a JCL. 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.
Note the format is decided as follows: In the ON clause we can specify the format in which data will be iceyool. A few of them are listed below with their functionality:.

Used to return control to user icftool terminate. It is usually used to create empty dataset or delete an existing dataset. These utility programs need to be used with appropriate DD statements in a JCL in order to achieve the specified functionality. Note that only the column we mentioned in ON is printed in the report. Prints the number of records with value greater than Also note that in the above figure the title is being printed every page.
Also note that both the titles are printed. BLANK replaces all the leading zeros.
All unique records will be copied to another datasets. ON indicates the fields to be displayed on the report. Raj kumar Bhakthavachalam 4 September at We can tuhorial NOCC to override default of printing carriage control characters. Usually used to manage VSAM datasets.
List indicates the output dataset. Following can be used to remove duplicates from a file and save it to another file. ON indicates the column for which unique must be found. Usually, this is not recommended icerool view of performance for large files.
Input and output datasets can be defined using user defined DD names.
This will copy records from 1 to 99 and then the last record. We can turn off that display using NOCC. The ones that occur only 1 time are not printed. The string within is also printed before the value is printed.
Is for formatting purpose.

It gives best utilization of system resources and efficient operation in bit and bit address spaces. Ashwani Sharma 24 November at This displays the count of records having field 36,2,ZD greater than TLEFT to print the title left justified.
