This means the output dsn for sortxsum dd dsn
is with duplicates.right?

So this is in reciprocate with sum fields=none which is to eliminate duplicates. am i right?

Thanks.

DFSORT's ICETOOL can do the equivalent function and more. See the "Keep dropped duplicate records (XSUM)" Smart DFSORT Trick at:
