red,

Krishy is right. See the table of COBOL data types vs DFSORT formats at:

http://www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/software/sort/mvs/professor_sort/srtmacfm.html

Note that comp-2 is an 8-byte FL (floating point) value, so you can use these DFSORT control statements:

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=(1,7,CH,A)
  SUM FIELDS=(27,8),FORMAT=FL
