I have a requirement like, when ever there is a mismatch in the SORTIN and SORTOUT record length in DFSORT, the step has to abend with some return code.

You can use DFSORT's PAD and TRUNC options for that. For example:

Code:

//DFSPARM DD *
   OPTION PAD=RC16,TRUNC=RC16
/*


This will give a RC=16 if the SORTIN LRECL is different from the SORTOUT LRECL.

If you really want to ABEND for this case, then you can use:

Code:

//DFSPARM DD *
   OPTION PAD=RC16,TRUNC=RC16
   DEBUG ABEND
/*
