I have one input file, need to split it into two output files which can be done. problem i am facing in this is...for the first file say city code = 0, in need to do outrec to change the length and in the second file i need to write the records other than city code 0.

Title of your thread changed - please use a meaningful title

OK - Input LRECL is what, input RECFM is what, output file 1 RECFM & LRECL are what, same for output file 2.

Why do you need to change the length, or are you reformatting the output file 1 ?

Give examples of both input and expected outputs.

input file and ouput file record length is 504 VB.

i am able to create one sortout file by using this sort card.

SORT FIELDS=COPY
INCLUDE COND=(5,2,CH,EQ,X'0004')
OUTREC OVERLAY=(14:C'XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX',60:C'99999999',
74:C'99999999')  

now need to include one more conditon for city code = 0. then only it should do outrec and write this format to the sortout1 file. if city code is not equal to 0, should write the whole record into sortout2

Why don't you use two OUTFIL statements, e.g.

Code:
 
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT1,INCLUDE=(5,2,CH,EQ,X'0004')
  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT2,INCLUDE=(5,2,CH,NE,X'0004')

dhivakarram,

I think you want DFSORT control statements something like this. I assumed your city code was 1 byte in position 11 - change as needed

Code:

    SORT FIELDS=COPY
    INCLUDE COND=(5,2,CH,EQ,X'0004')
    OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT1,INCLUDE=(11,1,CH,EQ,C'0'),
      OVERLAY=(14:C'XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX',60:C'99999999',
           74:C'99999999')   
    OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT2,SAVE


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
