Hi friends,

I am facing a problem while sorting an input file. Can anyone please help.

My input file is like this

----+----1----
01|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
03|0000000006|
04|0000000006|
03|0000000006|
07|0000000006|
01|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
03|0000000005|
04|0000000005|
03|0000000005|
07|0000000005|

The number in the first two columns should be sorted with in the number present in the column (4-13)

It is very important that the number in the column (4 to 13) Should be in the same order as in the input file.

The output should be llike this

----+----1----
01|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
02|0000000006|
03|0000000006|
03|0000000006|
04|0000000006|
07|0000000006|
01|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
02|0000000005|
03|0000000005|
03|0000000005|
04|0000000005|
07|0000000005|

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but you can change the job 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:SEQNUM,8,ZD,
                 97:SEQNUM,8,ZD,RESTART=(4,10))),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(97,8,ZD,EQ,+1),
                OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)),
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
                OVERLAY=(89:SEQNUM,8,ZD,
                         81:81,8,ZD,SUB,89,8,ZD,M11,LENGTH=8))
  OPTION EQUALS
  SORT FIELDS=(81,8,ZD,A,1,2,ZD,A)
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
