I am taking an input file and sorting it based on some conditions. But the first record in the output file of the sort should have some extra characters which should not come from the next records in the output file.
So is there any way that this task can be accomplished in a single or multiple SYNCSORT steps?


Thanks&Regards,
Sridhar

I believe you'll be able to do what you want using a HEADER.

You can find the complete info jn the Syncsort manual (available for free for Syncsort to licensed users) and you might search in our forums - make sure any solution you find will work with Syncsort.

Yes, this is possible using SYNCSORT. First sort the input records based on the conditions and then add the SEQNUM on the sorted output. Then add the extra characters for the record with seqnum 1 and then build excluding the SEQNUM numbers.

Post the sample input/output incase if you need a working JCL.
