Try using the CMPPFM (compare physical file member) command.

Subject:        Compare Files/Records


I need to compare about 500 files with 500 other files to see if any
records in the files are different and which fields have changed.  All
the files are externally described.  This is going to be used as part of
a software validation test for some conversions we are doing.  i.e.
convert the data-run the new software in parallel with the old
software.  Then convert the data to another library and the files should
be identical.  Something like CMPREC OLDFILE(TESTLIB1/FILE1)   
NEWFILE(TESTLIB2/FILE1)


Obviously I would prefer to have the computer do all the work :)
