Hi Mr. Frank Yeager,

I am getting error in below sort card when i use variable length file as an input. If i use Fixed length file its working fine.

SORT FIELDS=(07,8,CH,A,
15,04,BI,A,
19,15,CH,A,
44,10,CH,A),EQUALS
OUTFIL FNAMES=(SORTOUT),REMOVECC,NODETAIL,CONVERT
SECTIONS=(07,27,TRAILER3=(7,101))

Can you help me to solve this problem. icon_smile.gif

Kalai,

For the OUTFIL statement, you need a comma after CONVERT (VTOF) and you need a BUILD operand. Since you have NODETAIL, the BUILD operand can just have nX where n is the LRECL you want for the FB output data set. Something like this (note that TRAILER3 will pick up the data from the input record, not from the BUILD operand):

Code:

  OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT,REMOVECC,NODETAIL,VTOF,   
    BUILD=(128X),                                     
    SECTIONS=(07,27,TRAILER3=(7,101))
