ksssrikanth,

It's not clear from your post what you're trying to do. In fact, I can't make any sense out of it at all. You show three values for input (19,32,20) and three completey different values for output (10,29,39). Where did those output values come from?

You need to explain clearly what you're trying to do. Give an example of the records in your input file and what you expect for output. Give the RECFM and LRECL of the input file. Give the starting position, length and format of the relevant fields.

Hi ,
i am giving the example

input :

19
18

245
26

output : SORT FIELDS=(1,4,CH,A)

18
19
2
206

But i need the Sort to be done on numeric base not on the character mode

Excepted output :

206
245
254

Ah, why didn't you say so in the first place. You can use this DFSORT statement:

Code:

   SORT FIELDS=(1,4,UFF,A)
