Hi,

I have a VSAM file. I would like to extarct the records which have a value 'TTT' in a particular field.

INPUT:
---------
ABCDTTTEFGHI
AVBASASDFWER
AFSDFWERWERR
ASDFTTTWERRE

OUTPUT:
---------

ABCDTTTEFGHI
ASDFTTTWERRE

Will the same sortcard i'm using currently for a sequentaail file can be used for the VSAM file?

Thanks,
Ramesh.

It depends. DFSORT can treat VSAM data sets as either variable-length or fixed-length. You have to tell DFSORT which to use depending on whether the VSAM records are all the same length (fixed) or not (variable). For more details, see:
