Reply with quote

hi,

I have an SD section in my cobol program where i use a cobol sort.

i.e.

SELECT SORT-FILE ASSIGN TO SORTFL


SD section.

SORT-FILE.

DEFINITION of the file

my question is whether the SORTFL (Logical file name) need to be given in the JCL, because in one such instance i did not find the SORTFL DD statement in the JCL.

Could any one explain on how it works

Thanks n Regards

I am surprised to see there are still COBOL Sort modules exist. It is preferrable to use SORT utility in the JCL which is much more efficient and faster.
