Rupesh,

can we write a sort card for this


YES. Are you using SYNCSORT or DFSORT?

If DFSORT is installed in the site, then use the SUBSET operator.

Code:
//S1  EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL                                           
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*                                           
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*                                           
//IN DD DSN=...  input file                                       
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file         
//TOOLIN DD *                                                     
SUBSET FROM(IN) TO(OUT) KEEP INPUT LAST
/*   



btw, you can also use FILEAID in batch for your reqt.
