Hi All,
In DFSORT, can we use a VB file with SYSIN. Like
//SYSIN DD DSN=aaaaa.bbbbb.ccccc,DISP=SHR

Here aaaaa.bbbbb.ccccc is a VB(Variable blocked) file. When i am trying to run SORT woth this SYSIN stetement, i am getting MAXCC= 16. and a message that "sort statements npt found".

Please tell me if anything can be done. I dont want to change SYSIN statement.

Thanks and Regards

As far as I am aware, you need to use FB 80 for SYSIN with DFSORT.

If you do not want to change the SYSIN dataset, I can only suggest that you take a backup, and redefine the file with the correct attributes, and eliminate the need for any further changes.

SYSIN must be FB, but you can use your VB file by converting it temporarily to an FB file. If you want me to show you how, tell me the LRECL of your VB file.

S1 sets up the temporary FB SYSIN file from your VB SYSIN file. S2 uses the temporary FB SYSIN file.

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN                                             
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  SYSIN file (VB/80)                             
//SORTOUT DD DSN=&&C1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(,PASS)   
//SYSIN DD *                                                     
  OPTION COPY                                                     
  OUTFIL VTOF,BUILD=(5,76,80:X)                       
/*
//S2 ...
...
//SYSIN DD DSN=&&C1,DISP=(OLD,PASS)
