Does the 'ABC' occur only once in a member? Or multiple times? Is yes, are they occurring at the same position?

DFSORT only operates on one member at a time. DFSORT cannot process selected members of a PDS using a wildcard. You'd need to use REXX or some other facility outside of DFSORT to process multiple members.
