Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your "key" was in positions 1-10 and your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80. You can change the job appropriately for other keys and attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
aaa
xxx
navneet
aaa
qqq
rrr
bbb
/*
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
* Add 'A' for 'navneet' and 'B' for other records.
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:C'B')),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,7,CH,EQ,C'navneet'),OVERLAY=(81:C'A'))
  OPTION EQUALS
* Sort on 'A'/'B' and then name.
  SORT FIELDS=(81,1,CH,A,1,10,CH,A)
* Remove 'A'/'B'.
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
/*


SORTOUT has:

Code:

navneet   
aaa       
aaa       
bbb       
qqq       
rrr       
xxx

INREC reformats records before they are sorted, merged or copied. OUTREC reformats records after they are sorted, merged or copy.
You can use DFSORT for a wide variety of functions.

The best way for you to answer your own questions is to read through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
