Reply with quote

Hi,

I am using a JCL for SORT in which the control card for SORT will be created dynamically by a COBOL program.

Code:

//R070 EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='MINCORE=4096K'
//SORTIN DD DSN=&P..ADD841MP.R065.JOBSTEP(0),
//  DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=&P..ADD859MP.R020.JOBSTEP,
//  DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD DSN=ENDEVOR.&PROD..CNTLCARD(ADD855S1),
//  DISP=SHR
//      DD DSN=&P..ADD859MP.R060.CTRLFILE,
//  DISP=SHR


Where
&P..ADD859MP.R060.CTRLFILE is the file created dynamically.

When this file size is larger job abends.

How I can handle this problem with the large size of SORT control card?

Even I tried with maximum value for MINCORE parameter.

Thanks
kalai

Which sort product are you using (ICExxxs messages = DFSORT, WERxxxs messages = Syncsort)?

By "file size" do you mean LRECL? What is the RECFM and LRECL of the two SYSIN files when the job works? What is the RECFM and LRECL of the two SYSIN files when the job doesn't work?

That's a Syncsort message. I'm a DFSORT developer. I can't help you with Syncsort.
