you have posted private information like PATENT/LICENSED-SERIAL number for the product you are using, which you are not supposed to.
I request any moderator to remove it from the above post. Thanks.
EXPLANATION: A SUM control statement was specified in a SORT
FIELDS=COPY application. Since a COPY operation does not use
SORT/MERGE key fields, the specification of SUM, which operates
on equally keyed records, is illogical.
ACTION: The SUM statement will be ignored, but the application should be
checked for correct specification of control statements.
This is the description of the error message WER050I.
Looking at the error message feel that you had mentioned SORT FIELDS=COPY, is it so?
Please let me know the link to the error message description manual.
Aaru, there is no specific link for error codes description(as per knowledge).
You should get it from QW, as i have shown before.
If there is any alternative for QW that's used in your site, then it would help you, check with your seniors

Is this command site-specific? am using SYNCSORT and still this command is not working
QW stands for "Quick Reference", I doubt it that it's not installed on your site. On command prompt when you enter "QW" & press enter, "*MVS/QuickRef *.* - Main Menu *" should be invoked. However, Dick's point cn not be ignored.
Not everywhere has all of the possible QW info installed.
But if you are SyncSort user, you can get all the material from them. I tried it once & now I've those documents with me.
The description of the error message WER050I is:

By the way "Quick Reference" is like a third-party tool from Chicago-Soft. Here is a bit more info on this:
