DFSORT can process VSAM files. See the following for some things you should be aware of when you process VSAM files with DFSORT:

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL in general, I'd suggest reading 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:
