Hello Guys,

I am writing a report using cobol report writer and wanted to sort all the rows in report in ascending order. Is there any command in COBOL report writer by which we can directly sort all the rows.

Thanks,
Amol

Hello,

I believe you must sort the data before presenting it to the Report Writer. If the data is not very large, you could use the COBOL internal sort.

Here is a link to the Report Writer on the IBM site:
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/awdtools/cobolreportwriter/

This link is to the Report Writer documentation pdf:

Good luck icon_smile.gif
