I'm using following sort card in job:

Code:

  OPTION COPY
  OUTFIL OUTREC=(1,20,DATE1)


My job is giving Max CC = 0, but the output is still empty.

Thanks,
Rahul.

rahulcherekar,

if your Input file is empty, then your output also would be empty. if your intention is to create a header record even if your file is empty then use the following control cards

Code:

//SYSIN    DD *                               
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                           
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,HEADER1=(1,20,DATENS=(4MD))
