The DCB parameter of output PS file (from a production job) is 'DCB=(DSORG=PS,RECFM=VBS,LRECL=2854)' . The file format is VBS and I am not able to browse the content in the file. ( I tried even in FA)
So please provide me the solution.

You may have to dump records using IDCAMS.

Are you able to open the file in file aid with no selection criteria applied?

You can also try converting VBS to VB file.

Not all that surprising -- VBS files may not able to be converted to VB in all cases.

I tried File/Aid on a VBS file and managed to open it for editing; there may be something specific to the file you're working with that is causing problems but FA in general can handle VBS files.

Hello,

Once the vbs file is created, how is it later read/processed?

You might try to copy the file to vb using your sort product.
