Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file
//TOOLIN DD *
SELECT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) ON(1,3,ZD) FIRST USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,3,ZD,A,13,3,ZD,D)
/*
