SORT FIELDS=(start position,length of field,type,direction)

If your dataset is RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, then it would be:

SORT FIELDS=(1,80,CH,A)

paru,

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, 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:
