yogeshpawar,

You seem to be confused whether to use DFSORT/ICETOOL or Syncsort/SYNCTOOL. To tell which one is your primary sort product at your site, look at the messages you get when you use PGM=SORT and PGM=ICETOOL:

PGM=SORT
DFSORT - ICE messages
Syncsort - WER messages

PGM=ICETOOL
DFSORT's ICETOOL - ICE messages
Syncsort's SYNCTOOL - SYT messages

If you have DFSORT, then you have DFSORT's ICETOOL and there would be no reason to use Syncsort's SYNCTOOL. DFSORT's ICETOOL is fully documented and fully supported (has been since 1991) and its function and documentation have been enhanced many times since then. SYNCTOOL is undocumented so if it did have any functions not found in ICETOOL, there would be no documentation of those functions. Likewise, there would be no documentation of functions missing from SYNCTOOL.

Yes, that's true. icon_cool.gif

I'm quite proud of the fact that I "invented" and developed DFSORT's ICETOOL in 1991, as well as all subsequent enhancements. I even wrote all of the documentation. I'll continue to enhance and document it in the future.

Alissa's code was missing the //SYSIN DD name.

Although my JCL did not specify the SYSIN DD, it should not matter. The SYSIN DD statement will be automatically be generated before the first line that does not have // or /* (etc.) in the first and second columns.

Ray, if you are still having problems with this application, please send me a PM or direct email and I would be happy to assist you further.

Happy New Year to all.

Is that shop specific ? Because I did not get it automatically when I copied your code and executed it.

The JCL I provided works at all of our datacenters and also works at other customer sites. I do not know why it does not work at your site. To prevent this anomaly in the future, I will be sure to be more explicit when posting jobstreams.
