Just do it. For example:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...
//SYSIN    DD    *
  SORT FIELDS=(21,5,CH,A)
  SUM FIELDS=(5,8,ZD)
/*


The SORT statement specifies the starting position, length, format and collating sequence of the sort field(s).

The SUM statement specifies the starting position, length and format of the sum field(s).

You can use SUM FIELDS=NONE instead of SUM FIELDS=(p,m,f) if that's appropriate.

If there's more to your question, you need to clarify what you're looking for.

I agree with the reply posted,just wanna put forward 1 more fact,may be its is helpful for PadmaPriya that SUM FIELDS=(starting character,number of charactres,datatype(ZD)) will sum all the rows for which the control fields in the SORT CARD are satisfied
