If I leave off the last ,/ after position 117, it runs perfectly, but my detail lines are single spaced.
My error message is:
093:52,01, SOR1 FLAG
105:53,01, SOR2 FLAG
116:54,01, ERROR CODE
WER268A OUTREC STATEMENT : SYNTAX ERROR
WER211B SYNCSMF CALLED BY SYNCSORT; RC=0000
WER449I SYNCSORT GLOBAL DSM SUBSYSTEM ACTIVE
The asterisk lines up under the back slash.
The manual seems to show this as being able to work, but no soap. Any suggestions?

I tried Dick's solution and got the same error.
Yup, mine was just a swag with no connection in sight that night. . .
The Programmer's Guide (version 1.2 for ZOS) doesn't even begin to approach these things.
There is some additional 1.2 material that i'm sure you can get from Syncsort support or thru Alissa. As i recall, there is at least an "addendum" - Addendum. BUILD, IFTHEN, IFOUTLEN, and OVERLAY Parameters as well as an exploiting JOIN publication.
why doesn't SyncSort document these cool functions
Yeah, it may be in the manual, but not sufficiently explained
I m sorry, I(most probably others here as well) dont seem to understand your problem. What you are blaming is a really handy user guide for users all over the world. Personally I never felt any topic not 'sufficiently explained' in the manual.
Your first statement has proved that you have nt taken the effort to go through the manual to see if the explanation is there or not.
If you find it difficult to understand the explanation for any of the keywords mentioned above, you can always ask it , I m sure Alissa will be happy to explain it further.
Yeah, it may be in the manual, but not sufficiently explained for anyone to make heads or tails of it.
If you are unclear about a particular feature, or question the capability of SyncSort to perform a particular function, all you have to do is ask. Perhaps you would benefit from reviewing SyncSort's Sortwriter Data Utility Guides. These have been available to licensed customers since 1989. If you do not have these available to you, but would like to acquire them, please contact me offline and I would be happy to assist you further.
