Yes, as either filed or variable length, what gives you the idea that RRDS might not be sortable?

Hi Will,
RRDS are records that are stored in structures called as slots, which is identified by RRN , if sorted according to u, the relative positon of these slots would vary according to the sort card , I doubt that this is possible , As far as my knowldge we cannot sort a VSAM file reasons PSB

ESDS ---> RBA would change if sorted, which is not allowed .

KSDS ---> Already sorted (Index )

RRDS ---> RRN would be changed if sorted

Please let me know if u have a different opinion.

Cheer's,

Thamilzan.
