Use Outrec parameter in the sort card.you will get the desired results.

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OUTREC FILEDS=(1:1,100,C'X')


try this and let us know .i have not tested.the o/p file is of LREC 101.

Madhu,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/100)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/101)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(101:C'X')
/*


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
