Hi,
My requirement is getting the 1st column data and putting in sortout.
But i want it to be within single quotes.

eg:-
Input File:-
111111
222222
333333

desired output:-
'111111',
'222222',
'333333',

Can anyone please suggest a solution to this.

I think this should work:
OUTREC=(C'''',1,6,C''',')

Quote:
Use the 'literal string' subparameter to define a literal string. Specify the number of repetitions by specifying n immediately before it. An apostrophe within a literal string must be specified as a double apostrophe; for example, ? 'O"Leary'.
