Hi All,

Could you please help me why I am getting the WER244A error? I have been trying all the permitations and combinations. Here is my code. I am using SYNCSORT utility.
Code:

//SORTOUT  DD DSN=T11.ACBD0608.MASTER.DW6,           
//            UNIT=SYSDA,DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),     
//            SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE),             
//            DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=23472,BLKSIZE=23476)
//SORTWK01 DD UNIT=SYSDA,                             
//         SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE)                 
//SYSIN    DD *                                       
   SORT FIELDS=(5,1,CH,A)                             
   INCLUDE COND=(5,3,CH,EQ,C'A01')                   
   OUTREC FIELDS=(1:1,4,5:312,20)

WER244A [ddname] {INREC,OUTREC} SHORT RECORD

EXPLANATION: The ddname will be SORTOUT, SORTOFxx,
SORTOFx or the ddname provided by an OUTFIL FNAMES parameter.
A variable-length record was too short to contain all the fields specified
on the control statement. Program HISTOGRM may be used to determine
the length of the shortest record in the input file.

You have defined the OUTREC out to position 24 of a VB 23472 record.

You must define the complete record, so try:
Code:

//SORTOUT  DD DSN=T11.ACBD0608.MASTER.DW6,           
//            UNIT=SYSDA,DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),     
//            SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE),             
//            DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=23472,BLKSIZE=23476)
//SORTWK01 DD UNIT=SYSDA,                             
//         SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE)                 
//SYSIN    DD *                                       
   SORT FIELDS=(5,1,CH,A)                             
   INCLUDE COND=(5,3,CH,EQ,C'A01')                   
   OUTREC FIELDS=(1:1,4,5:312,20,25:4000C' ',
               4025:4000C' ',
               8025:4000C' ',
              12025:4000C' ',
              16025:4000C' ',
              20025:3448C' ')
 


This OUTREC parameter places blanks in positions 25-23472 of the output record and should allow the sort to execute. I did it in segments of 4000 because the maximum repetition factor is 4095.
