Yes you can use the SECTIONS operand of the OUTFIL statement, or the BREAK operand of ICETOOL DISPLAY, to do control breaks.

Here's an example using SECTIONS:

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CA20/3.13.2.4?SHELF=&DT=20060615185603&CASE=

Here's an example using BREAK:

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CA20/6.7.5.8?SHELF=&DT=20060615185603&CASE=

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:
