I have file as below:

Feld-1 Feld-2 Feld-3
AAAA BBBB +0000000000100000
AAAA BBBB +0000000000100000
BBBB CCCC +0000000000100000
BBBB CCCC +0000000000100000

I am sorting on field 1 and 2 and the sum field is on 3rd field
Feild-3 is of 16 digits preceding with A + or - sign, so total length is 17 bytes.

So I could not use ZD ,FS,CFS formats as it is more that 17 bytes.

Can anyone please help me out in writing a sort step for the above.

DFSORT can SUM ZD fields up to 31 bytes, but these are not ZD fields, and FS/CSF cannot be used with SUM.

However, you can use the following DFSORT job to do what you want by using SECTIONS with TOT for the 17-byte FS field.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,9,CH,A)
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,
    SECTIONS=(1,9,
      TRAILER3=(1,10,
        TOT=(11,17,FS,EDIT=(STTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT),SIGNS=(+,-))))
