|Subject: ||What is Effcient Merger?|
I have a BIG data set (>4 millions obs.) on MVS and I want to merge a
small data set (67,000 obs.) to it. I will end up with 67,000 (or
less) obs.. The problem is I ran out ot WORK space on mainframe (even
after increasing it to the limit.) I wonder if there is an efficient
way of merging that will require a minimal space. Any suggestions
will be appreciated.
My thinking now is to break the BIG data into 4 or 5 data sets and
carry the mergers one data set at a time. How is this?
