Hi all,

I have a query on SORT. We are using SORT program to sort and merge 7 really huge files, but we are getting user abend 16. It says 'SORT CAPACITY EXCEEDED'. I think there is some thing called as MAXSORT which can help us out. Can anyone provide little more information about MAXSORT or an example of MAXSORT. Or is there any other way to do it ??

Thanks in advance

To avoid this kind of problem you can increase the dynamic allocation option.
If you look for DYNALOC in your sysout you will know what is your defaut and so you can increase that value:
i.e. with
Code:
OPTION DYNALLOC=(SYSDA,nn)

in your SYSIN.
But I think that if you post the same question to the correct forum you will have more detail.

Amol,

Are you using DFSORT (ICE messages, e.g. ICE000I) or Syncsort (WER messages)?

If you're using DFSORT, add the following to your DFSORT steps:

//SORTDIAG DD DUMMY

and send me the //SYSOUT messages offline (yaeger@us.ibm.com) and I'll take a look.

U can give more sortwork areas too if you still have a problem. This will create temporary sort areas and are used while sorting large files. The syntax is specifed below.

//SORTWKnn DD UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(1,1)

However the SORTWK should not be specified for copy or merge utitlity if the DYNALLOC parm is used

Actually, SORTWK should not be specified for copy or merge at all since copy and merge don't use work space.
