Hi,
How can we check if the sortout file is empty in the sort step itself.
I have some 92 outfiles and I need to check whether it is empty or not in the sort step itself.
Please help me.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!
Sree

Which sort?
Several utilities including DFSORT can generate an RC if the input is empty.

Hi,
I am telling about the DFSORT utility.
We have few records in the input file and after sort, I need to check whether it is empty or not.(preferably in the same step).

Is possible to do this by using SORT?.


Yes. The "Set RC=12 or RC=4 if file is empty, has more than n records, etc" Smart DFSORT Trick at:

http://www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/software/sort/mvs/tricks/

shows how to do it.
