I want to sort the file except first record. But I want to have this as a first record into the output file after sort of the remaining record.

Let me give one example.

Below is the input record with record format FB and rec length 80.

xxxxxx
Nike01
Nike03
Nike02

The output should be

xxxxxx
Nike01
Nike02
Nike03

Please note I don?t have any specific format on my first record. (i.e) It may be xxx or yyy.

It would be really grateful if someone will helping to me to do this.

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY=(81:C'1',82:SEQNUM,8,ZD)),
    IFTHEN=(WHEN=(82,8,ZD,EQ,+1),OVERLAY=(81:C'0'))
  SORT FIELDS=(81,1,CH,A,1,6,CH,A)
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
