Reply with quote

Many z/OS DFSORT functions were delivered as PTFs at various times, so in order to use them your System Programmer needs to have installed a specific DFSORT PTF. To read all about the DFSORT functions delivered in October, 2010, November, 2009, July, 2008, April, 2006 and Dec, 2004, see:

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=1348

Note: z/OS DFSORT V1R12 is used for z/OS 1.12-1.13. z/OS DFSORT V2R1 is used for z/OS 2.1. These are the only currently supported releases of DFSORT.

To determine which level of DFSORT functions you have available, look at message ICE201I in the //SYSOUT messages you receive from the DFSORT job shown below, or from any successful DFSORT job.

If you see:

ICE201I 0 RECORD TYPE ...

The 0 indicates you have 2013 z/OS DFSORT V2R1 functions (64-bit support, Alphanumeric comparison tests, PARSE upto 1000 fields, Repeating PARSE fields, Alphanumeric tests for PARSE fields, Insert a string at the end of variable-length records, Symbols for Numeric operands etc) and all of the earlier functions. You are completely up to date on DFSORT functional PTFs.

ICE201I H RECORD TYPE ...

the H indicates you have the October, 2010 DFSORT functions (RESIZE, IFTRAIL, ACCEPT, ADDDAYS, DATEDIFF, TRAN=ATOE, KEYBEGIN, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 and z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026. You are completely up to date on DFSORT functional PTFs.

Note: If you see WERxxxs messages, you have Syncsort, not DFSORT.

If you see:

ICE201I G RECORD TYPE ...

the G indicates you have the November, 2009 DFSORT functions (JOINKEYS, TOJUL, TOGREG, WEEKDAY, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK51706 and z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK51707. You are behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.

If you see:

ICE201I F RECORD TYPE ...

the F indicates you have the July, 2008 DFSORT functions (FINDREP, WHEN=GROUP, DATASORT, SUBSET, etc) and all of the earlier functions.
This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90013 and z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90014. You are behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.

If you see:

ICE201I E RECORD TYPE ...

the E indicates you have the April, 2006 DFSORT functions (PARSE, JFY, SQZ, SPLIT1R, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90007. You are behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.

If you see:

ICE201I 0 RECORD TYPE ...

the 0 indicates you do not have the July, 2008 or April, 2006 DFSORT functions. You are way behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.

You may or may not have the Dec, 2004 DFSORT functions (IFTHEN, OVERLAY, SFF, UFF, etc), which corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UQ95214. try using one of these functions - if you get errors trying to use it, then you don't even have the Dec, 2004 PTF installed.

*******************

You can run this job to see the ICE201I message:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
RECORD
/*
//SORTOUT DD DUMMY
//SYSIN   DD   *
  OPTION COPY
/*
