I have one ps file in which there are 3 fileds emp_no,emp_name and leave_app.this ps file information give the detail of employee which is going to apply for leave.suppose emp_no=113430,emp_name=ajay,leave_app=1 that means he is going to apply for 1 day leave.and accordingling the table in db2 will be updated means if he has that no of leave in his account then he will get dat leave and updated acc. in table(leave_balance=previous leave present in table-leave_app).Now i want to check whther the updated result is correct or not by comparing the two ps file using IEBCOMPARE or icetool so what is going to be the two ps file and how its is going to be compare.
