Issues with HASHLOV Function

Hi,

 

I am using mainframe data maker to mask files .I have below issues with the HASHLOV function.

 

I am using VSAM seedlist to mask a field. Seedlist has all unique values.I see for some of the records even though the values to be masked  are different  HASHLOV is hashing to the same value.Please see the example below

 

eg:-

Before making

001

003

005

001

 

After masking

010

011

011

010

 

values 003,005 are hashed to 011.

I tried using XREF option also with HASHLOV but no luck. I can not use SEQLOV as I need consistent data post masking also.

 

Could you please assist us to fix above mentioned issues with HASHLOV function for mainframe? Or suggest an alternate function ?

 

Thanks,

Abhinav
