I have an ESDS file having length 100055 bytes. I want to sort the file based on first two fields. First field is of length 6 bytes binary format ascending order, and second field is of 3 bytes binary format and descending order.

When we tried to sort using ICETOOL, we were getting error - INVALID DATA SET ATTRIBUTES SPECIFIED SMS023SI LREC. Please find the sort step that we were using -
Code:

//BIICE035 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG  DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//SMS023SI DD  DSN=input file,
//             DISP=SHR
//SMS023TO DD  DSN=output file,
//             DISP=OLD
//TOOLIN  DD *
 SORT FROM(SMS023SI) TO(SMS023TO) USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,6,BI,A,7,3,BI,D)
/*


Please help me in sorting the input ESDS file of 100055 bytes.

DFSORT cannot sort a file with a length of 100055 bytes. See the second set of bullets on the following page for DFSORT's input length limits:

Without divulging any company-confidential information, could you explain the need for a record of that size?

There is one flag in the file which repeats 99999 times. so the totall length of record is 100055 including some other fields.
