Hi all.

I am having an input file of LRECL = 80,

Code:

----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+--
12354 asdasdasd5 a asdasdad
123453 dfadasd
sdaadadsdada


I want to add a line "I am a Good Girl" at the top ( First line of the PS FILE ), irrespective of any condition.

So my output will come as below,
Code:

----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+--
I am a Good Girl
12354 asdasdasd5 a asdasdad
123453 dfadasd
sdaadadsdada


Could you guys please provide some Sort card to do the Same.

Thanks in advance.

You don't really even need SORT -- a simple concatenation and copy will do it:
Code:
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=IEBGENER,REGION=6M
//SYSIN    DD   DUMMY
//SYSPRINT DD   SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT1   DD   *,DCB=BLKSIZE=????
I AM A GOOD GIRL
/*
//         DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=<old file name>
//SYSUT2   DD   DSN=<new file name> ...

A simple sort copy with a HEADER1 should do the trick.

Niki,

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=... input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OUTFILE REMOVECC,
    HEADER1=('I am a Good Girl')
/*
