I have a file like this.

Code:

Emp Id    Seq No.      Status      Sorid
1              1            a         AB
1              2            r         BC
1              3            a         CD
1              4            r         DE
2              1            a         AB
2              2            r         BC
2              3            a         CD
2              4            a         DE



I need the output like

Code:

1              3            a         CD
2              4            a         DE


That means I need the employee id records with status 'a' and of maximum sequence number. Can this be achieved using DFSORT.

You can use a DFSORT/ICETOOL job like the following to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG  DD SYSOUT=*
//IN DD *
1              1            a         AB
1              2            r         BC
1              3            a         CD
1              4            r         DE
2              1            a         AB
2              2            r         BC
2              3            a         CD
2              4            a         DE
/*
//OUT DD SYSOUT=*
//TOOLIN DD *
SELECT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) ON(1,1,CH) FIRST USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INCLUDE COND=(29,1,CH,EQ,C'a')
  SORT FIELDS=(1,1,CH,A,16,1,ZD,D)
/*
