Hi
I have a doubt about the importance of work files in the SORT utility
In which situations are these work files are mandatory?

Sonali,

Work files are NOT needed for a MERGE or COPY application.

Work files may not be needed for a SORT application if DFSORT can sort all of the records in main storage, memory objects (V1R5), hiperspace, or data space.

We recommend that you not use SORTWKdd DD statements, but instead use dynamically allocated work data sets so DFSORT can decide whether or not it needs them. DFSORT's shipped default is to use dynamically allocated work data sets (if needed) when SORTWKdd DD statements are not specified.

Alain,

I was able to open the pdf file without any problems. I've sent it to you offline as an attachment in a note.
