Hi,

I want to filter the records in the input file based on the two date parameters that i receive in the JCL. Is it possible to code a SORT card which will take the two dates (symbolic parameter) and apply the SORT condition on the input field?

your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,
symbolic parameters cannot be passed to SYSIN statements.

How do you receive the two date parameters in the JCL ?
