[CLOSED] Need to merge 3 hold files and create report from merge

I have looked at some posts on the forum for merging but nothing I tried works. I would do a union or create views in sql but I'm stuck in WF.

I need to merge rows from 3 different hold files.
example I have 55 rows in Renewals and 30 rows in endorsements and 88 rows in AllQueue.
All 3 hold files have the same fields. I need to make a single file with 173 rows that I can then report from.

My precedure does a join of multiple master files, creates a hold file "renewals"
does a define and creates next hold file "endorsements"
does a define and creates last hold file "allqueue"

code for tables:
TABLE FILE WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT
SUM
J3.TRAN_TYPE_DIM.TRAN_TYPE_NM AS 'Type'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.DISPLAYMMYY AS 'DocDate'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.ACTIVE AS 'Active'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.PEND AS 'Pend'
BY LOWEST J0.USER_DIM.USER_ID AS 'UserID'
BY LOWEST J2.NODE_DIM.NODE_NM AS 'Node'
BY LOWEST WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.DISPLAYMMYY NOPRINT AS 'CalcDate'
WHERE ( J3.TRAN_TYPE_DIM.TRAN_TYPE_CD EQ 'R' ) AND ( WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.DT_KEY EQ '09/29/2011' );
ON TABLE HOLD AS RENEWALS FORMAT FOCUS
END

TABLE FILE WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT
SUM
COMPUTE OLDEND_DATE/MDYY = MIN.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.OLDENDDATE; NOPRINT AS 'CalcDate'
J3.TRAN_TYPE_DIM.TRAN_TYPE_NM AS 'Type'
COMPUTE OLDEND_DATE/MDYY = MIN.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.OLDENDDATE; AS 'DocDate'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.ACTIVE AS 'Active'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.PEND AS 'Pend'
BY LOWEST J0.USER_DIM.USER_ID AS 'UserID'
BY LOWEST J2.NODE_DIM.NODE_NM AS 'Node'
WHERE ( J3.TRAN_TYPE_DIM.TRAN_TYPE_CD EQ 'E' ) AND ( WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.DT_KEY EQ '09/29/2011' );
ON TABLE HOLD AS ENDORSEMENTS FORMAT FOCUS
END

TABLE FILE WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT
SUM
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.DISPLAYMMYY NOPRINT AS 'CalcDate'
AllQueue AS 'Type'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.AllQueueDate AS 'DocDate'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.ACTIVE AS 'Active'
WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.PEND AS 'Pend'
BY LOWEST J0.USER_DIM.USER_ID AS 'UserID'
BY LOWEST J2.NODE_DIM.NODE_NM AS 'Node'
WHERE WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.WKFLOW_DOC_TYPE_FACT.DT_KEY EQ '09/29/2011';
ON TABLE HOLD AS ALLQUEUE FORMAT FOCUS
END

You can try;

quote:

How to Concatenate Data Sources
USE
fileid-1 AS mastername
fileid-2 AS mastername
.
.
fileid-n AS mastername
END
where:

fileid-1...fileid-n
Are any valid file specifications for the files being concatenated.

mastername
Is the name of the Master File that describes the data sources.


or:

quote:
How to Concatenate Data Sources
The MORE phrase, which is accessible within the TABLE and MATCH commands, specifies how to concatenate data from sources with dissimilar Master Files.

{TABLE|MATCH} FILE file1
main request
MORE
FILE file2
subrequest
MORE
FILE file3
subrequest
MORE
.
.
.
{END|RUN}



Search for 'Concatenate Data Sources' in Developing Reporting Applications documentation manual (DN# 4501038.0511). You will find some ideas and examples that might help.

If the three hold files have the same column names and same field formats, why not just do a dynamic concat? The records will all be placed onto table1 as new rows, creating the one table with 173 rows you are looking for.

  
DYNAM CONCAT TABLE1 TABLE2 TABLE3

TABLE FILE TABLE1
PRINT *
END
