Is it possible to SORT or use INCLUDE COND to a file that has a VARIABLE RECORD LENGTH (RECFM=VB) format.

Yes, you just need to add 4 bytes to the field locations to account for the RDW

Yes, of course it is.

See the following for more information:

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CG30/2.1.3?DT=20080529102039

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:

www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/software/sort/mvs/srtmpub.html

If you need more specific help, give more details of what you're trying to do.
