OUTFIL can be used with INCLUDE or OMIT parameters to include or omitting records.

Different INCLUDE or OMIT parameters can be used for different OUTFIL statements.

All of the logical expressions that are valid for the INCLUDE and OMIT parameters of OUTFIL.

However, the FORMAT parameter cannot specify with the OUTFIL statement.

VB data set considerations also apply to the INCLUDE and OMIT parameters.


Syntax:

SORT FILEDS=(Starting position, length, data-format, A/D)
OUTFIL FNAMES=DDNAME1, INCLUDE/OMIT COND=(….)
OUTFIL FNAMES=DDNAME2, INCLUDE/OMIT COND=(….)
…..
OUTFIL FNAMES=DDNAMEn, INCLUDE/OMIT COND=(….)

Name Description
DDNAMEnDDNAME is eight character’s name that representing the actual dataset in JCL.
INCLUDE/OMITSpecifies the INCLUDE/OMIT condition for specific OUTFIL

Example: -

Create three output files like below.


dept1 records to file1

dept2 records to file2

records other than dept1 to file3

Explaining Solution:

  1. SORT FIELDS=(1,5,ZD,A) - sort all outputs in ascending order based on the ZD value from 1 to 5 positions.

  2. OUTFIL FNAMES=OUTPUT1,INCLUDE=(30,5,CH,EQ,C'dept1') - All the records marching with “dept1” from the 30th position of length 5 will be copied to output1 file.

  3. OUTFIL FNAMES=OUTPUT2,INCLUDE=(30,5,CH,EQ,C'dept2') - All the records marching with “dept2” from the 30th position of length 5 will be copied to output2 file.

  4. OUTFIL FNAMES=OUTPUT3,OMIT=(30,5,CH,EQ,C'dept1') - All the records marching with “dept1” from the 30th position of length 5 will be ignored and remaining all records will be copied to output3 file.
