Are the records FB or VB, and which sort product do you use ?

ksathishkumar83,

Assuming your input file is FB, you can use a DFSORT job like this to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,5,CH,EQ,C'CS001'),OVERLAY=(8:5X))
/*


If your input file is VB, let me know and I'll show you how to handle that.
